Hotel Information:

The La Cantera Resort & Spa (16641 La Cantera Parkway, San Antonio, TX 78256) is our host hotel for the conference. As of January 3, 2023, the group room block was filled to capacity with early-bird registrants but the status changes daily and rooms will only be provided on a space and rate-available basis going forward. If you plan to attend, we encourage you to secure a reservation at a nearby venue as soon as possible. You may also consider contacting The La Cantera Resort directly near the end of January or early February to see if any availability has opened due to cancellations occurring within the room block for the 36th Annual Construction Law Conference. Also note that additional parking areas are being made available at The La Cantera Resort during the conference to better accommodate drive-in attendance.
