Houston officials hope city becomes a destination for mega-events


Houston never has served as a popular destination for the biggest national events. Despite the area's enormity, the city has only hosted a couple of Super Bowls, a pair of Final Fours and a few all-star games over the past half-century. A couple major conventions like the GOP National Convention in 1992 also called on Houston for hosting duties.
