What is the offsite BBQ Casino event?
The offsite networking dinner party has become an AirBorne tradition and is a great way to see Austin and have fun at the end of the day. You can bring a guest, but they must be registered and have a badge ($195). If you are paying for a guest, you should do so in advance as bus seating may be limited.
Our buses will pick everyone up at the hotel and transport you through the beautiful Texas hill country to The Creekside Pavilion in Driftwood (south of Austin) for a BBQ dinner and a night in the casino with lots of casino games. There will also be a DJ, a prize wheel, complimentary margaritas, beer, and lots of great Texas BBQ. Fun is guaranteed after the long day in the conference room!
