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?
