The 2023 Ultimate DECA Power Trip

November 17-19, 2023 in Austin, TX

The 2023 Ultimate DECA Power Trip Conference takes place this November in Austin, Texas – right in the middle of Texas Hill Country!

DECA organizations from high schools, colleges, and businesses will come together for three days of intense learning labs, competitive role-play, college and career exhibits, and valuable networking opportunities.


What Happens

The 2023 conference highlights the skills you need to succeed in a technology-based, global workplace.  These include:

  • Financial, economic, business, and entrepreneurial literacy
  • Creativity and innovations
  • Critical thinking and problem-solving
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Integrity and ethical behavior
  • Leadership and responsibility

Interactive sessions underscore the importance and relevance of these skills today and in the future.  If you’re planning for a successful future, be sure to plan your DECA power trip!


While You’re in the Austin Area…

There are standard favorites and must-dos in the Austin area… and with more than 300 days of abundant sunshine each year, you’ll want to get out and enjoy the city!

Here are a few highlights you won’t want to miss!

Live Music Venues

Austin is the Live Music Capital of the World®.  With nearly 200 live music venues throughout the city, you can catch a great performance at practically any time of the day.  Be sure to swing through 6th Street for the latest up-and-coming talent!

Bullock Texas State History Museum

Explore the Lonestar State’s vibrant and eclectic past at the Bullock Texas State History Museum.  Featuring more than 700 artifacts and special exhibits showcasing the diverse history of Texas, it’s a great way to spend a day.

Oh – and in typical Texas style, the museum also boasts the largest IMAX theater in the state!

Austin Bats

For the brave souls in your group, the Austin Bats are a natural wonder you don’t want to miss.  For part of each year, 1.5 million bats call the Ann Richards Congress Avenue Bridge home.  It’s the largest urban bat colony in North America.

Grab a spot early for the evening show.  Better yet, kayak under the bridge at dusk for the best view!
