The Imperial 2015 Team has received a number of inquiries regarding the recent flooding events in Texas and more specifically, in the Houston area. We deeply appreciate the concern, and our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those who suffered loss of loved ones or property during this historic event. While the flooding was indeed significant in various parts of the greater Houston area, we are pleased to report that the George R. Brown Convention Center, Hilton Americas Headquarters Hotel, or any of the hotels, restaurants, etc., in the downtown area were not adversely impacted whatsoever. Additionally, although both Bush Intercontinental and Hobby Airports did experience some flight delays, neither facility was ever directly impacted by the flooding. Oft referred to as the Bayou City, Houston utilizes a system of large bayous for rain water drainage. The system normally works extremely well; however this past week’s storms dumped an overwhelming amount of rain in a very short span of hours onto ground that was already saturated due to a much wetter than normal month of May in the Houston area. In closing, please rest assured that Houston is open for business and your Imperial 2015 Team is anxiously awaiting your arrival! See Y’all Soon!!! Go to Imperial Session 2015 on facebook for more information. Imperial 2015 will be held in Houston, Texas July 5 - 9.
