As we prepare to embark on another exciting journey into CottonCon, we wanted to be sure you knew everything you needed to in order to successfully get the most out of your experience. Consider the tips below when you join us, whether you’re getting in early on Wednesday or coming only to our Success program on Thursday afternoon.


For those guests who will be driving in from the Greater Houston area to attend this year’s events, we know the first thing that’s probably on your mind: where am I going to park? Fortunately, we’ve got answers!

For overnight guests, your valet will be taken care of with a sticker provided to you at the hotel check-in desk. For non-overnight guests, your valet will also be taken care of with a sticker provided to you at the CottonCon registration table. If you choose to self-park, please utilize the North Avenida Parking Garage and bring your ticket to the CottonCon registration desk where there will be parking validation machines to utilize.

No matter what you choose, Cotton has you taken care of!


Once you are inside the hotel, we ask that you check in at our registration table as soon as you are able to. CottonCon registration will be located on the 4th floor in front of the Texas ballroom as soon as you exit the elevator lobby. If you arrive on Tuesday, check-in will be from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM. On Wednesday, check-in will be from 8:00 AM until 1:00 PM. All others must check in Thursday between 8:00 AM and 12:00 PM before Success begins.

Here you will receive your badge, personal schedule, and more to utilize on your journey through CottonCon.


Once you’re settled in, don’t miss out on the many special treats we have for you throughout your visit to CottonCon.

Snap a few memories at our fun photo booths stationed in the corner of the Texas Ballroom foyer in front of the David Mitzner Ballroom. Be sure to use our hashtag #CottonCon23 so that we can share and enjoy your great photos too!

We’ve also brought the store to you this year with a very exciting Cotton Co-op pop-up shop filled with exclusive CottonCon items, our Summer collection and brand-new Astros + Cotton merchandise. You’ll find our Co-op pop-up shop on the 4th Floor, between elevator lobby & stairwell, in front of Texas Ballroom A-C. It will be open on Wednesday from 8:00 AM - 7:00 PM and on Thursday from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM. The shop will close during all active sessions, so swing by during breaks and meals!
