2. Austin’s convention has all the tricks, tips and treats to make your Halloween memorable! Candy is great but what’s sweeter than taking home a whole new tool-kit of abilities? With 300+ learning sessions and hands-on workshops, you can gain a variety of valuable skills and resources from Austin’s convention.
