Houston is a large, sprawling metropolis in Texas, but it is probably most famous for the Space Center, the visitor center at NASA’s astronaut training and flight control complex.
Why exhibit there?
As well training astronauts, Houston’s economy is based on a broad range of industries including: oil and gas exploration, basic petroleum refining, petrochemical production and technology (computer, aerospace, environmental).
From George Bush Intercontinental Airport to downtown Houston is easy thanks to Bus 102, the fare is cheap and it only takes about an hour.
