Anyone who has ever been to a COMET Conference knows that we like to compliment all the networking, learning and professional development with a fun element.

We will be taking you on a unique and insightful technical tour of the University of Texas at Austin, ranked among the biggest and best research universities in the country.

Following the technical tour will be an outing to Austin’s vibrant 2nd Street District.
