New Avenida Houston Welcome Center, a Gateway to the City

The most recent addition to Avenida Houston convention and entertainment campus is the long-awaited Welcome Center which features three distinct experiences: the city’s official Welcome Center; Launch, a retail outlet; and Avenida Eats, a grab-and-go eatery. Located inside the George R. Brown Convention Center, the new Welcome Center is accessible from the building or the outside plaza. The Welcome Center celebrates its grand opening Friday, July 26, 2019.

Houston First Corporation (HFC) will manage the center to help visitors discover the greater Houston area’s well-known attractions as well as its hidden gems. A knowledgeable staff member can assist visitors with signing up for guided tours, making reservations, or purchasing tickets through the Marketplace which curates the best of Houston’s cultural attractions and things-to-do into unique experience passes.
