Free TripIt Lounge This Weekend at SXSW

TripIt is hosting a free lounge space this weekend at South by Southwest (SXSW), and you’re able to gain access with or without a SXSW pass (though, priority will be given to pass holders).


Limited Time Offers Up To 50,000 Points

Whatever your mood, you’re golden in The TripIt Lounge. Feeling lively? Come refuel on Austin-inspired bites and spirits all while reliving the Golden Age of Travel with some of our favorite globetrotters. Need a break? We’ll help you depart from the action and arrive at relaxation. Recharge yourself and your gadgets in first-class style in our laid-back lounge. 

There’s also a panel of speakers that will be hosting various events, both on Saturday and Sunday, and it’s a great chance to meet and greet with experienced travelers.

You can register here for tickets into the lounge, and space is limited to one ticket per person.

I’ve copied the schedule below for convenience:
