MOODY CENTER AND TITO’S HANDMADE VODKA: TWO TEXAS BRANDS COME TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE MUSIC AND SPIRITS
(AUSTIN, TEXAS) – The highly anticipated world-class arena, Moody Center, and the beloved Austin-based spirit, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, are teaming up to provide branded experiences at over 150 unique events each year and upwards of 15,000 fans each event in a multi-year sponsorship deal.
Live event enthusiasts at Moody Center will have access to exciting new activations with America’s Original Craft Vodka at the Tito’s Handmade Vodka themed bar in the main entrance, as well as a variety of other locations throughout the venue with signature craft cocktails.
“Live music and Tito’s go together like power chords and punk rock. Pair Austin’s original distillery with the city’s newest concert venue and you have a match made in music heaven. If there was ever any doubt that Austin, Texas was the live music capital of the world, the Moody Center will absolutely cement that title this coming April when it opens and we start pouring” said Taylor Berry, VP of Brand Marketing at Tito’s Handmade Vodka.
“We could not be more excited to work with one of the most iconic Austin brands and showcase Tito’s Handmade Vodka and their craft cocktails inside Austin’s brand-new entertainment venue. There is no better fit than the Tito’s brand being featured front and center when entering our building. We are grateful to the talented Tito’s team for being the ideal collaborators on this project. Tito’s Handmade Vodka enhances the Moody Center guest experience in every way” said Dan Shell, President of OVG College Partnership Sales.
