South by Southwest in Austin

Top 10 reasons to meet with Red Fan while you’re in town for SXSW

One of Austin’s premiere festivals is right around the corner. We'd love to meet you while you're in town for South by Southwest! Check out the top reasons why Red Fan is the best place to drop in during South By.

1. If you come by the historical Helms House on a Friday morning you’ll take part in Breakfast Taco Friday. Isn’t that reason enough?

2. We put on talk-of-the-town events, like the Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon premiere party with director Mike Myers, Willie Nelson and Tom Arnold. We put on first class events at our turn-of-the-century Victorian home or at your venue.

3. You might meet architect Christopher Sanders in our conference room, the architect behind the new cutting-edge studio 3TEN ACL LIVE, the latest addition to the venerable Austin City Limits brand and family.

4. It's not unusual to find one of our fintech clients pow-wowing with the likes of Guy Kawasaki over a customized morning delivery of barbecue.

5. The Lost Pines bluegrass band can be found strumming on our front porch and drinking local beers with our clients when the weather is just right.

6. Red Fan isn’t just a public relations firm, we’ll help you kick the tires on your company, take you through a brand-positioning audit and develop a solid foundation to guide messaging across every platform.

7. SXSW got you run down? We’ve got a spot for you in our cupola to catch a catnap. Hank, our Cavalier King Charles colleague and Chief Entertainment Officer may even join you. (Please note: he does snore.)

8. Take a guided tour of the Helms House and hear legendary stories of some of the original owners like Charles “Lucky” Attal (founder of C3 Presents) or soak up the vibe of some of the raucous parties that occurred under the roof of this 1892 home.

9. With Red Fan, you get the A-team every time and for every need. We love interns, but they aren’t running our accounts.

10. Our doors are always open—we know hospitality. So come on by during SXSW for a cold drink, a chat on our porch and a sanctuary away from the crowds.
