Last week, we joined our US team in Austin and, following a successful official launch of our office located in Industrious on West 5th street, we now truly feel at home there.
As well as the fantastic weather (as opposed to Manchester’s currently freezing temperatures), we really loved the community spirit and the nurturing of creativity we came across in the city.
While in the US we really embraced the culture in Austin and took part in the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning, followed by a dip in Barton Springs and a huge Thanksgiving meal that evening - complete with turkey and pumpkin pie!
2016 has been a huge year for us in terms of global growth, and now, with a new US headquarters, and multiple new recruits, we are confident that 2017 will mark an even better year.
Our first major event in Austin during 2017 will be South by South West (SXSW) in March which celebrates innovation in technology as well as film, culture, music and more. We will be exhibiting at the Trade Show as well as attending other events throughout the week. Get in touch if you have any suggestions for what to attend or set up a meeting for when the team is there!
