Real Places 2021 Conference banner

Real Places is the premier historic preservation and heritage tourism conference in the Lone Star State, where anyone interested in protecting our past can work directly with industry-leading experts to learn practical, actionable solutions they can apply in their community. Presented by Phoenix I Restoration and Construction and hosted by the Friends of the Texas Historical Commission, Real Places 2021 will take place online, February 3–5, 2021.

Register for just $125.

That’s more than $300 off the regular rate for the in-person event, and it comes without added lodging and travel expenses. Plus, you get the same exceptional educational experience Real Places always delivers. There will be 28 sessions on a variety of historic preservation and heritage tourism topics presented by 44 expert speakers from across Texas and the U.S.

Sessions will be available for at least 60 days following the conference. If you have to choose between two sessions happening at the same time or you have to step away for a while, no problem. You can catch up later at your convenience.

Also new this year, organizations with multiple attendees can save 25 percent on additional registrations purchased at the same time (meaning the first one is full price, and each additional is 25 percent off).

Full-time students with a valid ID can attend for just $50, thanks to the generous Real Places Student Scholarship Sponsors.
