Welcome friends to Texas!
The name Texas, based on the Caddo word tejas meaning “friends”.
The 2021 WISTA USA AGM & Conference will be hosted in Houston, named The Most Diverse City in The United States, in a recent survey has held that distinction for several years running. With near 2.5 million residents, Houston is a city without a majority, where more than 140 different languages are spoken. 90 nations have consular representation in the city. It is only fitting to name our Conference “DIVERSE ENERGY”. Having grown into one of the nation’s largest ports, the Port of Houston has more than
fulfilled the dreams of those who pushed for dredging a channel more than fifty miles long to make Houston an inland deep-water port. Come and see old friends and make new friends while enjoying “the newest capital of great food” named by Food & Wine and partake in many activities and events that Houston has to offer.

Looking forward to seeing you in Texas!
