SpaceCadet, a cutting-edge commercial real estate platform, today announced the availability of multiple local spaces available for micro-rental during this year’s SXSW conference and festivals. SXSW will take place from March 9 – 18, 2018, in Austin, Texas. The properties can be viewed remotely from a desktop or mobile device, as SpaceCadet employs state-of-the-art drone and 3D scanning technology with an online marketplace, allowing for an immersive, convenient experience to virtually tour a space at any time.
This March, SXSW will celebrate its 32nd instalment of the music, tech and film festival, and will include over 350 sponsored events throughout Austin. The ten-day show will include tech shows, panels, and countless other immersive experiences.
“SXSW has grown into a movement unto itself, where brands can enter with little to no recognition, and quickly generate quantifiable business benefits while standing at the threshold of cutting-edge technology,” said Steven Quintanilla, co-Founder of SpaceCadet.
Last year, SXSW saw close to 80,000 engaged conference attendees. It is estimated that some of the local small businesses will see over 20% of their annual income generated during that brief period of time.
“Entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of the economy,” said Quintanilla. “Building a business from the ground-up is arduous and success is not guaranteed. We have consistently seen unmatched ROI from businesses who have created a space around SXSW to showcase their brand and to entertain new and prospective clients.”
SpaceCadet has absorbed the burden of finding affordable space for entrepreneurs as they work to validate their business models. The commercial real estate platform directly connects landlords with brands in need of space, generating short-term income and stimulating urban economic development, while allowing small businesses to take big risks with little economic repercussions.
SpaceCadet has multiple available SXSW properties listed on their site, including an art gallery, office space, parking lots, and a multi-level loft space with rooftop bar. SpaceCadet has already completed the leg-work by providing 3D property scans for brands seeking space.
“We are thrilled to be leveraging SpaceCadet to support the small businesses and brands of SXSW, an event that has both professional and personal significance to me,” said Quintanilla. “SpaceCadet has bridged a broken system by increasing accessibility to commercial space and mitigating the risk of turning a dream into a sustainable business.”
