Buyer's 17th Annual Texas Public Finance Conference
February 10-12, 2013
Barton Creek Resort & Spa, Austin, TX
- Texas is the home to one of the nation's strongest economies, a population that's grown twice as fast as the country's over the past ten years, and forward-thinking leaders who understand the need for public infrastructure to sustain that growth into the coming decades. Demographers expect the state's population to top 45 million by 2040.
- Texas cities make up an unprecedented 9 of the top 25 metropolitan areas ranked in the Milken Institute's Best-Performing Cities Index, which evaluates the metro areas best able to create and sustain jobs.
- Texas continues to rank as a hotbed for innovative financing techniques, where issuers strive to meet the growing demand for first-rate infrastructure while maintaining the low-tax culture that drew businesses and residents to the state in the first place.
How does Texas do it? And how does the state sustain the momentum? Gov. Rick Perry says holding the line on taxes, having a reasonable regulatory structure and offering economic development incentives such as the Texas Enterprise Fund and Texas Emerging Technology Fund have attracted hundreds of employers to Texas.
Texas sales tax collections in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 are up 11% from the same period of fiscal 2012, with November revenues of $2.339 billion exceeded only by the record $2.342 billion collected in August. The state will distribute $552 million of November's sales tax collection to cities, counties, transit systems, and special purpose taxing districts. >>MORE
For 17 years, this event has grown alongside the Texas municipal bond market. The Bond Buyer's 17th Annual Texas Public Finance Conference is the place where you can master all of the innovations that issuers have deployed in the last year, and also hear directly from some leading lawmakers and legislative staff about their agenda for the year ahead.
Since 2010, more than 400 of the Lone Star State's senior municipal finance professionals attended annually, to hear directly from their peers and leading lawmakers. This year's agenda boasts a portfolio bursting at the seams with content driven sessions, dynamic speakers, networking opportunities that are a proven catalyst in making the deals, and much more.
