Reunion Ranch - Corporate Event Spaces
The top three competitors of Reunion Ranch who operate large corporate event spaces within 25 miles of Austin, Texas, capable of accommodating between 300 to 6,000 people are Carson Creek Ranch, Star Hill Ranch, and Garden Grove. For each venue, we researched location, capacity and acreage, target audience, packages offered, unique selling point, activities rendered, and pricing information when available. Please note that although the top competitors were requested, these were the only three venues that meet the criteria within 25 miles of Austin. There were two other venues in the area, but each held fewer people than the three detailed here. As such, these are, by default, Reunion Ranch's top competitors. Details are provided below and in the attached spreadsheet.
Carson Creek Ranch
Located at 9507 Sherman Road, Austin, TX 78742, Carson Creek Ranch is located eight miles, or 21 minutes driving time from Austin, Texas. The venue consists of two 20 acre pastures and has a capacity of over 2,500 guests.
Carson Creek targets primarily festival and concert events. It will also host special events. No outdoor games, or sports, such as those advertised by Reunion Ranch, are listed on the Carson Creek website.
The Carson Creek brand advertises that it is "one of the oldest existing ranches in Texas." Branding for the property appears to focus on the "hip" nature of events that are routinely hosted there; it is regularly used for festivals and concerts featuring modern, popular artists. For example, the "Finding Euphoria" festival will be held at Carson Creek Ranch in May 2018. The festival features well-known hip-hop and independent artists. Also in 2018, Carson Creek will host "Beer Camp on Tour", America's largest craft beer festival.

Star Hill Ranch
Located at 1500 Hamilton Pool Road, Bee Cave, Texas, 78738, Star Hill Ranch is 18.9 miles, or 50 minutes driving time outside of Austin, Texas.
The unique selling point of Star Hill Ranch is that the facility is "a re-creation of a Texas Hill Country community typical of the early 1900s." No outdoor games, or sports, such as those provided by Reunion Ranch, are listed on the Star Hill Ranch website. However, Star Hill advertises capacity for weddings, corporate events, holiday parties, non-profit, student and church-related events. In our research, we noted that Star Hill seems to emphasize unique capabilities to host projects from the film production industry.
Branding for the property appears to advertise Star Hill as primarily a wedding venue, that also has the capacity to serve corporate events. A Texas-style wedding chapel and a newlywed couple are prominently featured on the venue website, which describes Star Hill as "a unique and accommodating setting for. . . Anything needing diverse facilities and flexibility in a beautiful setting."
According to the Star Hill Ranch website, full venue pricing starts at a range of $2,300 — $5,700 for Monday - Thursday rates, followed by $2,600 — $6,750 for Friday and Sunday, and $3,300 - $7800 for Saturday.

Garden Grove targets high-end weddings and corporate events. According to the website, Garden Grove was "born out of a love for luxury Mediterranean design & well-curated events." The unique selling point for Garden Grove appears to be a suggestion that the venue itself is more luxurious than other, comparable venues. No outdoor games or sports, such as those advertised by Reunion Ranch, are listed. The property features a 7,500 square foot "main house," with space for small corporate retreats. New overnight accommodations are advertised, with options for as many as 50 guests.
