South by Southwest
We are a local Austin based event staffing firm that has been providing promotional models and brand ambassadors for SXSW for the past 14 years. We have staffed for many of the major sponsors and promotions for SXSW over the years.
We are your local SXSW Staffing Experts!
Why choose us for your SXSW staffing needs? For one thing, we are locally Austin, Texas, based. We source all of our people locally, in person, and we are close enough to the action, so to speak, to have a hands-on management approach to your needs.
The talent that are listed on our site are only a very small sample of those available. A majority of our promotional talent, particularly for seasonal events such as SXSW, are not formally profiled on the website. Please contact us directly to discuss our talent pool and as to who would be available for your promotion. Thank you!

Why choose us to staff your promotion or event?
- EXPERIENCE - 134 years serving the Central Texas area with over 45 years of combined experience in this industry by our management team.
- LOCAL - We are a minority/woman owned business. We are not a big national firm, we are based right here locally and our staff of professionals are all part of our reliable and experienced team.
- PRICE - Our markup is competitive and we can handle sourcing, scheduling, invoicing, staff payroll, and can even perform product and service specific training (where necessary or requested). We handle all legal requirements for our staff, including 1099's. We accept checks, as well as all major credit cards. Our established clients are billed Net 30 on their accounts.
- AVAILABILITY - Our management is available to assist you before, during, and after an event or promotion, regardless of the day or time - 24/7. Call, email, or text us any time. We are always monitoring when we have staff out working for our clients.
- QUALITY - Because the individuals that we provide are our regular established staff, we can stand behind our staff's work ethics and reliablity; something you may not experience when staffing through a national firm that sources individuals via such resources as Craig's List.
- REPUTATION - Austin Promo Models is a division of the long established Austin Models & Talent Agency (one of the leading agencies in Central Texas that also represents commercial print models, as well as actors for televsion, film, and advertising).
- DEDICATED MANAGEMENT - Austin Promo Models is operated within the scope of the Austin Models & Talent Agency, but utilizes a dedicated Agent/Manager who is your direct contact for promotions related activities solely. For larger scale promotions and events where your may require on-site staff management, our dedicated Agent/Manager can be utilized to supervise and direct in order to help execute your requirements.
- VALUE ADDED - We can handle almost any special need. Do you need the staff you hire to purhase product (as in beer and alcohol sampling/promotions, wine tastings, etc.)? We can provide staff that carry our credit cards (Please note that this applies to full scale and long term staffing only). Does your event require our staff in special outfits or costumes? Many of our talented staff are also actors and they love working the "out of the ordinary"! We can handle almost any need from simple staffing, to actual on-site management, event tracking, and even remote planning including set-up and take-down.
- SPECIAL SITUATIONS - While our scope is Austin and the general Central Texas area, some of our clients are so delighted with our staff and services when they come in to town that they request the same talent be flown to other events in other cities across the U.S. Feel free to discuss any type of special needs, like this, with us. We have complete flexibility and are ready to serve you.
