Nightfall will unfold the evening of Thursday, April 2, 2015 at the Crystal Ballroom Houston, a short 15 minute walk from the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas.

The Crystal Ballroom is a 1913 historic ballroom located in the heart of downtown Houston’s famed Rice Hotel. You’ll be swept away with the location’s crystal chandeliers, heroic murals, immaculate 35-foot vaulted ceiling and picturesque sunset from the full wraparound terrace. This is one of Houston's most treasured and historic landmarks, an event here is not to be missed.

Hotel room blocks are also being currently offered and organized by Palace of Princes for those still looking for accommodations to attend both Nightfall and the convention. Please check this Facebook group for more information.
