2018 – A RETURN TO SAN ANTONIO
TRA Marketplace is at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas in 2018 for the first time in more than 38 years. Located in the heart of downtown San Antonio, HBGCC is recently renovated and is the perfect spot for our reinvigorated TRA Marketplace in 2018. The $325 million expansion marks the largest capital improvement project in the City of San Antonio’s history and increases the footprint to 1.6 million square feet.
