SXSW: San Antonio Finds Some Space to Tell its Story

AUSTIN – As the SXSW Interactive enters its final day on Tuesday, film and music portions of the annual festival in Austin are gaining momentum. Traffic in and out of San Antonio’s “icehouse,” a hub for Alamo City advocates and local industry experts, inside the Austin Convention Center was notably slower on Monday than the trade show’s first day on Sunday, said Choose San Antonio Program Director Nicolette Good.

At 6:30 a.m. on Thursday morning, most of the city was just waking up from a cold and rainy night, but Mayor Ivy Taylor was ordering several dozen tacos from Mittman Fine Foods in Eastside San Antonio with a mission: to deliver the holiest upon holy to Austin Mayor Steve Adler at the downtown Hilton Hotel in Austin.
