This year’s South by Southwest (SXSW) is officially a wrap. While Austin’s 10-day interactive, music and film festival has grown big (and not without growing pains), it’s still a powerful venue for new bands and brands; film makers, movers and shakers.
For our part, 5miles put together a pop-up marketplace on popular W. 6th Street right in the heart of downtown Austin. Hundreds of people came out to the event, including a number of 5miles “power sellers,” news media and social influencers. Also on hand were the creators of 5miles, joined by members of the “Awesome Experience” (customer support) team, who used iPhones and iPads (found on the marketplace) to demonstrate the app’s latest features (appointment booking, donation capabilities) to those in attendance. All in all, a very good time! Thank you, 5milers.
