Kirpeep’s Awesome Austin Adventure
It’s Spring and the weather is much nicer now, which means that we can go out and start enjoying all the events that are going on. We are happy to say that Kirpeep was part of the action in Austin, TX last week. Austin is home to SXSW, short for South by Southwest. It’s a weeklong conference that is broken up into three different sections. The first part is the interactive conference, followed by the music and film conferences.
The interactive conference is where new technologies are showcased for the world to see. Kirpeep hosted the SXSWi 2013 Ultimate Swag Challenge during SXSW. The objective of the Swag Challenge was to give SXSWi attendees the opportunity to interact with up-and-coming startups and businesses... And win some awesome prizes while doing it!
It was a three-day challenge with daily prizes as well as three grand prizes. The daily winners won Amazon $100 gift cards and 1st place winner, Bryan Andaya, took home a Samsung Galaxy Tablet. We would like to thank everyone who took part in the Swag Challenge, both companies as well as participants. We are looking forward to making next year’s Swag Challenge bigger and better!
And we've got great news for anyone who missed out. We saved some Kirpeep swag for our loyal Kirpeep users. You can be the owner of awesome Kirpeep swag by creating as many Kirpeep listings as you can between now and next Wednesday. Remember that you can create listings for goods and services, as well as needs and offers. Our contest will end on March 27th and we will announce the three winners on the 28th.
So start creating your listings and good luck!
