Here is the finalized schedule for Maverick Summit 2018!

Hi there everyone! Maverick Summit is coming up soon and we have finalized a lot of details for you all! Please read the following and if you have any questions, please send an email to Lauren Spittler at

If you have not booked your flight or hotel, here is all the information that you will need. Please fly into AUS (Austin Bergstrom) with an ideal arrival in early afternoon on Friday 8/3/18 and a departure time of anytime on Sunday 8/5/18. The suggested hotel to stay at is the Omni Downtown Austin as this is where the seminars will be hosted at. There is not a hotel block as this is low season in Austin and any online website to book hotels at the best rate is the suggested method.

Friday night starting at 7 PM, we have an awesome Fajita dinner with open bar (yep ALL included in your registration) at the Revelry  (908 E 5th St, Austin, TX 78702).
