The Professional Bondsmen is proud to celebrate its 50th Anniversary Convention with members, nonmembers, sponsors, and vendors. PBT is YOUR KEY to a successful business and while keeping the Texas Bail Industry thriving! The convention brings together bail bond professionals from across Texas for a fun and informative program to learn what is happening at the national level that could affect the Texas bail industry and what PBT is doing to keep our businesses open! Plus, the Convention Committee has planned outstanding social events for you to relax and enjoy networking and reconnecting with other bondsmen while forging new friendships.
Rooted in the rich history of San Antonio, the historic Menger Hotel reigns as the oldest continuously operating hotel West of the Mississippi. The Hotel is located directly on Alamo Plaza, adjacent to River City Mall and San Antonio's celebrated River Walk. In other words, you are steps from the city's best shopping, dining, and entertainment. The Menger Hotel offers architectural grandeur, glamorous public spaces and modern day services and amenities. From museum-worthy furnishings to their celebrated mango ice cream, the hotel is the essence of San Antonio.
San Antonio has begun Phase One of the Alamo Master Plan, a dramatic renovation of the entire site and surrounding areas including the Menger Hotel.
