Kasasa Nation Is 2 Weeks Away!

Penny Backer Bridge

Kasasa Nation is just two weeks away! We are putting the finishing touches on the event and are excited for you to see what we have in store. Before you head to Austin, take a look at these answers to questions we’ve gotten about the conference.


How do I get to the Hilton Austin?


We recommend using one of our many rideshare options to get from the airport to the Hilton. Our favorite is RideAustin, a nonprofit that gives you the option to donate to local charities. You can also use Uber, Lyft, or Fasten. For driving directions, click here.


What should I bring?


While Septembers in Austin are pretty hot, we recommend bringing a light jacket or sweater for the hotel conference rooms. And don’t forget business cards for connecting with other industry leaders.


Is there anything to do around the hotel? (Besides living it up at Kasasa Nation, naturally.)


Yes! You’ll be staying in the heart of Austin, so you’re surrounded by the city’s best restaurants, bars, and attractions. If you’re looking for something to do each day after the conference, or if you’re extending your stay in Austin through the weekend, you have plenty of options for keeping busy.


  • The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has shows the latest movies  every night. The best part? You can order drinks, food, and dessert that come right to your chair while you watch a movie.


  • For an Austin must-do, head to the Congress Avenue bridge, home of the world’s largest urban bat colony. About 20 minutes before sunset, 1.5 million bats fly out from underneath the bridge and fill the sky (it makes for a great photo!).


  • Want to know more about the city’s history? The Capitol does free tours of the building every day. Learn more here.


Where can I eat around the hotel?


We’re covering your meals while you’re at the conference, but we can’t blame you for wanting to try some of Austin’s best restaurants.


For barbecue, Iron Works is a very short walk from the Hilton. Two of our other favorites, la Barbecue and Terry Black’s Barbecue, are just a quick ride share away.


For tacos, The Austin Taco Project is actually located inside the Hilton (how easy is that?). And if you want to try some of the best tacos in the city, grab a ride and head to Veracruz All Natural, which is just a few minutes from the hotel.
