Signature Vehicle Events 

 The Texas Auto Writers Association annually produces two signature events: the Texas Auto Roundup in the spring and the Texas Truck Rodeo in the fall. Throughout the year we also participate and hold general membership meetings at the Houston, Dallas and San Antonio Auto Shows as well as the State Fair of Texas. Recognition and encouragement of excellence in automotive journalism are the goals of the annual Excellence in Craft Competition.


 SPRING


For over 15 years Our annual springtime event showcases the latest Cars from Compact to PERFORMANCE, activity Vehicles, hybrid and electric vehicles. 


 fall


EVERY FALL FOR MORE THAN 25 YEARS THE MEMBERS OF TAWA TAKE A LOOK AT THE LATEST VEHICLES IN THE ULTIMATE CONTEST FOR THE "TRUCK OF THE TEXAS" AND UTILITY VEHICLES OF THE TEXAS. 


Benefit of Sponsorship With  the Texas Auto Writers Association

Our sponsors find the one-on-one time with journalists and OEMs during the two annual TAWA events extremely worthwhile, and the benefits of sponsorship continue beyond each event. Participation creates valuable opportunities that far surpass similar events and creates marketing and public relations opportunities that are truly beneficial.

TAWA is interested in creating long-lasting relationships with our sponsors and so will provide customization and activation strategies specific to our sponsor’s objectives. The benefits are created with each individual sponsor in mind, therefore every sponsorship package is unique to the sponsor

Thank You,

Texas Auto Writers Board Members

    The 2019 Texas Truck Rodeo presents a new and exciting venue for the event - the Star Hill Ranch.  We have held dinners at this scenic location, and with the expanded venue, we plan to provide some great opportunities at the 2019 Texas Truck Rodeo.
    If you have attended past events at Star Hill, you are aware of the content generation potential, and for first time visitors, we are setting up terrific photo ops and display vehicles to help you get started.  
    We will arrive on Sunday picking up registration packets then heading to dinner with our Key Note speaker - Richard Johnson, recently retired 35 year Editor of the popular weekly magazine Automotive News.
    Every year, we ask our membership what we can improve upon and we do our best to address all suggestions. It seems one of the things we can improve is the ballot.  So this year, while we encourage everyone to vote at the event, we will not close the voting at the end of the event.  We know our members want to provide valuable feedback to our OEM participants, so the entire ballot will be available for voting and input until end of day, Thursday, October 31st. This should provide ample time for some thoughtful notes, as well as improved input on the voting process. 
    All award winners will be announced at the San Antonio Auto Show during the Dealer Preview Gala on Wednesday, November 20, 2019, at 6:30pm, the evening prior to Media Morning.
