The Computing Technology Industry Association, CompTIA for short, holds an annual convention for IT professionals named ChannelCon. The City of Austin was fortunate to be their host in 2017. (It’s being held in Washington, D.C. next year.)
Movemint was chartered to provide its attendees free rides from the J. W. Marriott downtown to Bangers, in the Rainey Street District. CompTIA issued our riders branded t-shirts and hand fans. The original plan was this:
40 pedicabs provide free rides between the two locations from 6 – 7 PM, and then
25 pedicabs provide free rides between the two locations from 8:30 – 9:30 PM.
The opportunity was extended to forego the off-period and continue riding, but only 25 pedicabs were still needed for that last hour. It was awesome.
A reasonable estimate is that we provided between 200 to 300 rides.
(Author’s note: Bangers is delicious.)
