The Sales Excellence Institute


The University of Houston’s Sales Excellence Institute

This year’s conference will be held at the University of Houston’s C.T. Bauer College of Business, home of the Sales Excellence Institute, among the foremost academic sales centers in the world.

Located near the heart of Houston, this public, tier one research university offers conference participants access to world class meeting facilities, and an inside look at emerging academic approaches to sales education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The University campus has a Hilton hotel close to conference facilities, and there are additional hotels within a 15 minute automobile ride. The Sales Management Association will provide additional information about conference facilities, including video and photography to help exhibitors anticipate what they will find at the event.


Parking is available in the Welcome Center Garage which is located directly across from the Student Centers. Please see us at the registration for a validated exit parking ticket.

Conference Hotels

Most conference attendees will chose to stay in hotels off campus, due to the limited availability of rooms at the on campus Hilton, and the proximity of hotels in the Downtown and Medical Center/Museum District areas, which have many more dining and entertainment options.
