Looking Back: Austin Music Awards
The 31st Annual Austin Music Awards were held last Wednesday during the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas and Ticketbud was proud to be there as both a sponsor and online ticketing provider. At the event, Ticketbud managed the event check-in process as well, welcoming over 1,500 guests to the famous Austin Music Hall.
Using the Ticketbud Scanner App, Ticketbuds friendly (and downright handsome) employees seamlessly scanned in hundreds of attendees quickly and easily. With an event as high-profile and well-attended as the Austin Music Awards, it was important to prevent the line from stagnating and guests from getting restless (as is often the tradition at SXSW events) and our scanner app was more than up to the task of handling the crowd as they snaked their way into the venue.
Inside the Music Hall, the music flowed and amazing artists like Alejandro Escovedo, Ben Kweller and Gary Clark Jr. played.
While the stage jammed, the Ticketbud booth was in full swing with awesome SWAG and giveaways for guests. Ticketbud also brought our friends at Fotobot along to help document the evening and all the colorful people that attended.
Thank you to the Austin Chronicle for choosing us as the online ticketing provider for the Awards. We're incredibly honored to take part and ticket such an Austin tradition and look forward to doing it all over again next year!
