SXSW is proud to announce the return of Esurance, the company known for its modern approach to car insurance, as a 2013 SXSW Super Sponsor.
As part of their 2012 sponsorship, Esurance gave the lucky winner of the Esurance Go Platinum Sweepstakes a 10-night hotel stay for 2 in downtown Austin, $1,000 travel money, and 2 Platinum Badges. On top of that, Esurance was committed to easing the SXSW experience for all attendees. Those who stopped by their booth were able to take a break from the maddening pace, give their gadgets a (much-needed) recharge, and take advantage of gifts and giveaways.
