Another successful year has come to a close for South by Southwest, (SXSW) and they also celebrated a huge milestone – it’s been 30 years since the inception of the festival in 1987. SXSW is an annual festival with conferences such as film, interactive media and music, which takes place in mid-March in Austin, Texas. Over 10 days, you can choose from a wide selection of films, concerts, exhibits and conferences to attend.
The list of conferences include, but aren’t limited to:
- Brands and Marketing
- Development and Code
- Intelligent Future
- Tech Industry
- Entertainment Influencers
There was also an amazing lineup of speakers – everywhere from the entertainment to tech industry, and in-between. Some notable speakers were:
- JC Adams – Cloud 9
- Michael Addicott – Pandora
- Rebecca Agbe-Davies – Crackle/Sony Pictures Television
- David Allen – CNN
- Wilson Andrews – The New York Times
- Dr. Polina Anikeeva – Massachusetts Institute of Technology
- Matt Atchity Rotten Tomatoes
Along with great speakers, conferences and exhibits, there is still something more important to see for innovators and artists – the award(s) they will hopefully walk away with! A list of all the award categories, finalist and winners can be found here. Congratulations to everyone that won and the finalists!
