Heading to Southwest MINI Fest this weekend? Want to make sure you are in the loop for all updates and always know what is going on? Here are a few things that you can do.


Relax. I know you don’t use Twitter and don’t want an account. That’s cool. Here is how you can get instant updates without an account and for free. Bee tee dubs, this also works if you already have a twitter account. You will need to have a phone that can receive text messages. Any phone, not just smart phones. Here is what you do:

Send a text message to 40404 with the words follow swminifest.

That’s it. From that point forward you will receive instant updates via sms. Works on all phones and even works if you are already following @swminifest on Twitter.

The Schedule

The schedule page is really clever. There are map links to almost all of the events. Bookmark it and create an icon on one of your home screens for quick and easy access.

Hopefully these will help you get the most out of the event. That and sunscreen and plenty of water (it is the desert after all) and you’ll be all set! Can’t wait to see everyone this weekend.
