FAQ | Kasasa Nation

What do I have to pay for?

There is a registration fee for the event itself (but ask your Client Success Manager to see if you qualify for a discounted fee). You will also need to cover your ground transportation and airfare. Meals will be provided and are included in your registration fee. You are responsible for extraneous expenses, including food or drink other than what Kasasa provides.

 

Kasasa has booked a limited number of hotel rooms for the event. These rooms will be paid for by Kasasa on behalf of attendees on a first come, first served basis.

Where is Kasasa Nation taking place?

It will be held at the Fairmont Austin, one of the newest luxury hotels.  It’s located downtown at 101 Red River St, Austin, TX 78701.

Who will be there?

Attendees will include representatives from a wide range of community financial institutions across the country. Some are existing Kasasa clients, but some will not be. We’ll also have thought leaders and industry experts who will serve as keynote speakers and panelists.

How will it help me?

This is your chance to connect with your peers, get actionable insights you can take back to your institution, and hear thought leadership from some of the best minds across industries. It will help you focus and refine your growth strategy — so you can make an even bigger impact in your community.

Will I have time to explore Austin?

Yes. In addition to built-in free time, you’ll also have the option to extend your stay (at your own expense) and enjoy the diverse and entertaining metroplex that is Austin.

Is this a sales seminar?

No. You are not being bribed to attend a two-day sales pitch. The purpose of this event is to bring community banks and credit unions together and create an environment where everyone can benefit. 

 

If you’re interested in hearing about how Kasasa helps attract, engage, and retain valuable consumers, there will be several opportunities, but it’s not mandatory.

Why is there a fee to attend this year?

As Kasasa Nation grows and continues to be the leading event for community financial institutions, implementing a registration fee is necessary to offset costs while providing the best possible event. We invest heavily into products, tools, research, and analysis that equip you for success and spare no expense in creating a first-class, beneficial experience for attendees.

 

Our mission has always been to help community banks and credit unions take back market share from megabanks and other competitors. This registration fee is an investment in your financial institution's future, as we feel strongly that the ideas, strategies, and connections you take away will help you grow your institution.

What is the dress code?

The dress code is business casual. We’re happy for you to look your best, but we want you to be comfortable too. Keep the weather in mind when planning your wardrobe. Spring weather in Texas can range from mild to warm and can be rainy.

What’s the weather like in April?

Texas weather can be unpredictable, but, generally speaking, April in Austin is usually mild. Expect temperatures in the 60s-70s (although warmer 80-degree days can sneak up on you). We do recommend bringing a light jacket or sweater in case the event space gets cool.
