RSVP site sees big growth as SXSW continues to expand

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Much like the festival itself, one of the groups responsible for getting you signed up for all of the different South by Southwest parties has seen considerable growth since its start.

RSVPster.com will sign you up for a slew of unofficial events for $30-$40, depending on what you want to attend. This way you aren’t having to hunt and do it all yourself.

Last year, they were expecting more than 3,000 people to use their service. The number is up to about 4,000 this year as they wrap up registration.

Their popularity has grown considerably on social media as well. On Twitter, their follower base grew by more than 7,000 since January, said Jennifer Sinski, the company’s founder.

Sinksi said they are adding new events daily to their list, which is already up to 600.

If you missed sign up, or you want to go at it yourself, staying in touch on Twitter, Facebook or other social media is your best bet. Searching SXSW during the next two weeks can easily help you see what events people are talking about, and where you might be able to catch a free show, day or night.
