What we did:


Day 1 - Welcome to Austin

With attendees arriving from all across the US at various times today. Our team were based at the airport from 11am-6pm to welcome and receive all and ensure they are transferred as quickly and easily as possible to their hotel. We also arrange a coach transfer for a group based in Dallas to bring them across for the event.


After check in and for some arriving early afternoon, it was free time to enjoy the amazing facilities at the Fairmont Austin. We kicked off the event with a short walk to Bangers in Rainey Street. We had exclusive use of their basement speakeasy and here our guests were met with the finest Texan hospitality, music, drinks and BBQ (of course). Presentations including employee awards were given by both the President of Transmission US and the CEO and founder. There was even a little surprise for the CEO, who had been travelling extensively across the other Transmission offices globally during the previous weeks. His wife was flown in as a surprise to him to share the celebrations. It was a real special moment and maybe a few tears shed across the room!




Day 2 - Team activities, wellness and farewell party.

We began the day with a light breakfast before breaking our group into three teams. We had a morning of bonding and experiences across three different activities - Nitty gritty walking tour of Austin; Kayaking and a Line Dancing lesson.


Each activity was chosen before the event and included transportation where needed as well as lunch for each group.



On return to the hotel after lunch, we had some free time planned for the group. Here they could choose to relax around the pool, try the spa and for those who still had the energy - a private yoga class.



In the evening, it was time to get everyone together for one last party. We heading just a short walk from the hotel to Electric Shuffle. Here we had semi privatised the venue and arrange for our group to enjoy some more great food and drink, as little bit of shuffleboard and dance the night away with the DJ. It was great to see how close the group had become, as many had not met in person just 24 hours ago!




Day 3 - Time to say goodbye!

Our final day meant back to where we began, transport and logistics. As we said our goodbyes and ensured our group a safe transfer back to the airport to begin their journey home.



Summary:

With a three month working lead time on this event and clear objectives. We brought our group into Austin and ensured everybody not only got a taste of Texas. But left with smiles, stories and memories that will be the talk of the office for a long tome to come.


Keeping transportation to a minimum in destination by walking as much as possible. Then presenting any excess food to local food banks and charities. We were able to hit achievable sustainability goals, including carbon off setting our own flights as an agency.


Thank you to all at Transmission US for the opportunity to bring this to life for you all. An amazing achievement in business, 10 years. As well as bringing everyone together to celebrate and build company culture.


Here's to the next 10 years and beyond!
