Summer’s not quite over in ATX!

While Labor Day marks the end to the heat and sunshine filled days of summer, no one has told Texas. Officially summer may be over, but Austin is still hot and the activities have far from slowed down. As PR pros we thought we’d switch from our usual focus on high tech business-to-business public relations and give Austin and 10Fold’s ATX office a boost.  We combed through upcoming events across the city and pulled together some of the “can’t miss” activities for this fall – just in case you feel like donning your cowboy boots and dropping by.

The University of Texas Longhorn Football

For as long as football has been popular, Texas has set the gold, rather burnt orange, standard for quality and experience. And it’s no wonder with a stadium that holds 100,119. After all everything is bigger in Texas. At the games, you’ll not only be surrounded by a hundred thousand strong of the Texas faithful, you’ll also be swallowed by an atmosphere that is electric and memorable. There’s no other experience quite like it. Apart from football, 10Fold is talking to a lot of intern candidates from UT-Austin for a coveted space in our downtown office.

ACL Festival

ACL Festival is one of a kind. Taking place in the heart of Austin at Zilker Park, this six-day festival never disappoints. This year features headliners Jay-Z, Red Hot Chili Pepper and The Killers, not to mention The XX, Foster the People, Chance the Rapper, Tove Lo, Gorillaz and The Head and The Heart. But don’t worry the headliners are hardly the only reason to attend the festival. All the food on the grounds is from local Austin staples like Torchy’s Tacos, Good Pop, Southside Flying Pizza, Salt Lick BBQ and Lonesome Dove, which happens to be down the street from our office. Definitely wear comfortable shoes, cool clothes and drink lots of water as the festival has a history of landing on hot weekends.

Formula One

And for the motor heads, Formula One hits the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) track again this fall. COTA was the first purpose-built F1 track in the U.S. and plays host to a number of races and concerts throughout the year. Qualifying races on Friday and Saturday lead to the final race on Sunday. Racing not your cup of tea? Justin Timberlake and Stevie Wonder headline post-race concerts on Saturday and Sunday with over 30 additional artists performing throughout the weekend.

This is just the tip of the iceberg of all the activities happening in Austin this fall, not to mention the SDxE Conference and DeveloperWeek. If you’re planning on making a trip to Austin this fall, be sure to check all the activities on Do512 or Austin360 and drop by and say “Howdy!” to our Texas team.

10Fold Grows a Mile High

New and exciting changes are happening at 10Fold! We’re particularly excited to officially announce the opening of our newest office in Denver, Colorado. Opening on the heels of our Austin office earlier this year, we’re thrilled to expand into Colorado and are located in the heart of Denver’s River North (RiNo) Arts District, just minutes from popular attractions such as Coors Field (map here).

So, what’s so special about Denver? It’s simple. At exactly a mile high (5,280 feet), Denver brings 300 days of sunshine, some of the healthiest lifestyles in the U.S., sweeping views of 200 Rocky Mountain peaks and amazing food and brews. Most importantly, the Mile-High City offers a vibrant business and cultural scene coupled with its thriving tech hub – something that specifically attracted us to the RiNo neighborhood. In fact, RiNo’s Business and General Improvement Districts are committed to creatively and sustainably growing the neighborhood and its diverse businesses – 28.9 percent of which are B2B tech companies. Moving forward, our Denver team will be sharing regular updates on 10Fold growth, local market trends, the latest hotspots, etc., so keep checking back on our blog!

Speaking of growth opportunities, if you’re a student based in the Denver Metro Area looking for a fall internship, a PR practitioner exploring your next career opportunity or an emerging technology company in need of PR and marketing services, we’d love to speak with you!

Howdy ya’ll! Greetings From Austin, Texas…

What are we doing in the Lone Star State, you ask? Well, we’re excited to officially announce the opening of our newest 10Fold office! That’s right, we’ve expanded our footprint (or cowboy boot print, we should say) beyond California to Austin, where you can find us located in the heart of downtown at the corner of 6th Street and Congress Avenue, just steps from the Texas State Capitol (map here).

There are many things that attracted us to Austin, primarily the booming local tech scene, coupled with an extremely talented pool of PR professionals. Oh, and of course the amazing BBQ, craft beers, incredible live music, endless sunshine, beautiful Texas wildflowers, etc. are all added bonuses!

We invite you to keep an eye on our blog, as our Austin team will be sharing updates regularly on the agency’s growth, local market trends, the latest hotspots, etc.

We could not be more enthused about the prospect of Austin. If you’re a University of Texas student looking for a summer or fall internship, a PR practicioner exploring your next career opportunity, or an emerging technology company in need of PR and marketing services, we’d love to have a conversation!
