SXSW Hits The Road In The UK

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

For many in the UK, SXSW is an annual fixture in their diaries. For others questions around the topic of ‘Why SXSW?’ abound (generally until the decision to made to go for the first time). But where can you ask questions about the Austin spectacle? The answer is at the upcoming SXSW Roadshow in the UK, organised by SXSW and UKTI:

The briefings will include short presentations about SXSW and MIDEM before moving into an interactive panel discussion to answer your questions and discuss opportunities. There will be plenty of time for networking to give music, film and digital creatives a chance to meet with me [Una Johnston] (SXSW), Javier Lopez (Midem UK & Ireland Sales Manager) and Phil Patterson (UKTI).

* Why is SXSW de rigueur for the digerati, music-minded and movie biz alike?
* What’s new for SXSW 2016
* How to plan for a rewarding SXSW
* Timeline Reminders

The roadshow tours the UK during the September, visiting Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, and London. You can find more details, and RSVP for the free events. I’ll be at the Glasgow event on September 1st, maybe I’ll see you there?

SXSW GAMING HAS MOVED! SXSW GAMING HAS MOVED!

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

*ahem*

Pardon my excitement at not having to endure the shuttle ride to the far side of the seemingly insurmountable Lady Bird Lake to get to the Gaming Expo.

SXSW has announced that SXSW Gaming has shifting its dates and location! Previously set in the Palmer Events Center on the South side of Lady Bird Lake, it was the opposite of SXSW Interactive both in Place and time. I was always torn between attending Interactive and Gaming sessions and events. BUT NO MORE!

SXSW Gaming will now take place in the Austin Convention Center March 17-19, after SXSW Interactive!  No longer will you be forced to choose sides! it is a TOTAL win-win for everyone attending SXSW 2016!

Here is SXSW’s announcement:

NEW DATES AND LOCATION FOR 2016 SXSW GAMING
For 2016, Gaming sessions and events will take place in the heart of SXSW activities at the Austin Convention Center. In terms of timeframe, these Gaming sessions also move to later duringSXSWeek® (March 17-19), thereby strongly emphasizing the strong crossover between the gaming, film and music communities. This programming occurs at the same time as the SXSW Gaming Expo, which also moves to the Austin Convention Center.

WHEN
Thursday, March 17 through Saturday, March 19, 2016.

WHERE
Austin Convention Center (500 E Cesar Chavez St) in downtown Austin, TX.

WHO CAN ATTEND
Free and Open to the Public

God bless us all. Every One!
