We are Pulling Out All the Stops!

The URA remains fully committed to holding a safe and successful in-person convention in San Antonio. URA has implemented additional COVID-19 protocols to provide a safe event environment. These protocols meet or will exceed all recommendations and safety procedures from the CDC, the State of Texas, and the City of San Antonio, as well as industry standards. Review the URA COVID guidelines. The URA Show will go on! If there is a government shutdown, registration fees will be refunded.

Plan to arrive on Sunday for the welcome party at Howl at the Moon co-sponsored by Ava Therese by Zavaté Apparel. After the fashion show on Monday, Careismatic Brands has pulled out all the stops for an event to be remembered at Pedrotti's Ranch. But the fun won't stop there. On Tuesday evening, gather with friends from White Swan Brands at The Grotto.
