Starry @ SXSW: The Recap

This past weekend we held our first official Starry Station event at SXSW Interactive, and it was a huge success. While our time in Austin was brief, we couldn't have had a better experience. Here's a quick recap.

The event was held at the Palm Door on Sabine, a rustic-chic urban loft space on a quaint street in downtown Austin.

It was the perfect setting to meet and introduce people to Starry Station. And there were certainly a lot of great people to meet. We had over 430 guests come through.

Members of the Starry team held demos, while guests were able to connect their devices to Starry Station's Wi-Fi and see it in action.

Everyone got their fill of Starry snacks.

Guests also had a great time picking up Starry swag. Here's a partygoer wearing a limited-run SXSW Starry t-shirt.

And another checking out #happyinterneting sunglasses.

They were the perfect accessory for hanging out on our deck after demos. The sun was shining all afternoon and the deck was packed.

All in all, it was a great afternoon.

And when we weren't working, we got a chance to check out the city of Austin. Amazing food, friendly people, and incredible weather won us over.

It was 48 hours well spent. We want to thank everyone who came and made our first Starry Station event such a huge success. Looking forward to many more.
