Land, Sea, Air: Uber aims to elevate rider experiences at Miami Art Week with exclusive activations, including first-ever UberSEAPLANE, presented by EFFEN(R) Vodka

MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 11/30/16 -- Miami Art Week brings artistic masterpieces and their admirers from around the world, but also adds to the congestion on Miami's already crowded roadways. This year, Uber, in partnership with Super Premium EFFEN® Vodka, will be there to enhance trips -- whether on land, sea or air -- and to encourage riders to Drink Smart®.

On land, riders will have the opportunity to request a complimentary "EFFEN Upgrade" in their Uber app. Limited Edition LUX SUVs, wrapped in custom art by artist Kwue Molly, will transport riders to and from events within the Request Zones, including South Beach, Downtown and Wynwood. Once inside the Limited Edition LUX SUVs, riders will gain access to a custom photo booth where they can snap and share photos with others. The EFFEN Upgrade will be available Thursday through Saturday between 4 p.m. and midnight. Additionally, while supplies last, EFFEN Vodka is offering Uber riders up to $5 off any ride that either begins or ends in the Request Zones to ensure Miami Art Week revelers can get home safely. Simply enter the promo code EFFENRIDE in the Uber App Thursday through Saturday between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m.

By popular demand, UberBOAT returns to Miami Art Week as the ultimate travel option between Miami Beach and the Art Districts, allowing riders to jet across Biscayne Bay in both directions on their own luxury yachts, all at the tap of a button in the Uber app. UberBOAT is complimentary for up to 6 riders per request. UberBOAT will be available Thursday through Saturday of Miami Art Week between 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. and will run between the marinas on Purdy Avenue and 17th Street (Miami Beach) and the Sea Isle Marina (located off of Bayshore Avenue and NE 16th Street, City of Miami).

This year, Uber is extending its offerings to the air with UberSEAPLANE. This first-ever experience, available by request from Mainland Request Zone, includes a complimentary LUX SUV ride, a trip on a designated luxury yacht, and an aerial tour of the best Miami Art Week has to offer, including Miami Beach, Downtown and Wynwood. By including all three Uber and EFFEN Vodka Miami Art Week experiences into one, UberSEAPLANE is the pinnacle of exclusive transportation in Miami. UberSEAPLANE will be available between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Thursday through Saturday of Miami Art Week.

The Uber Land, Sea, Air experience, presented by EFFEN Vodka, and $5 promo code are for riders 21 years of age and older. For more information, please visit https://www.uber.com/info/landseaair/.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
