Or, you can pick up your badge at either of the two satellite locations — where parking may be easier. For 2014, these two satellite locations are the Palmer Events Center (900 Barton Springs Road) or the Embassy Suites Austin Arboretum (9505 Stonelake Blvd). Satellite badge pick-up is open Thursday, March 6 (9am to 10pm) and Friday, March 7 (9am to 11pm). Also, satellite badge pick-up is only available for general Interactive, Film, Gold and Platinum registrants — if you are a speaker or press or a sales client, please proceed to the Austin Convention Center.
Remember that if you pick up your badge at Palmer on Friday, March 7, then you can ride the Interactive Venue Shuttle to to the Austin Convention Center (or any of our other venues). Or, just stay at Palmer and check out the incredible SXSW Gaming Expo, which opens on Friday, March 7.
Finally, special thanks to our friend Mike King for the visual reminder of how robots register for SXSW — by satellite, of course!
