It’s that time again – when the worlds of music, film, tech and interactive media smash into one another at speed, combine with a load of barbecued meat, and create a festival like no other; SXSW.
The event needs no introduction, really, so I won’t bore you. You know what to expect at this point, you seasoned veterans, you.
Brandwatch has been attending for a good few years now, and this year our attendance actually goes further than just hanging with the world’s digerati and watching bands (I’m making it sound like it’s not work! It is. Brandwatchers always come home very tired).
In this post I’ll be telling you where you can find us, what we’ll be doing, and most importantly, who you can hang out with from Brandwatch. We’re fun!
Who can you meet up with?
First of all, here’s who will be representing Brandwatch at SXSW.
Giles Palmer, CEO
Rich Pasewark, CRO
Will McInnes, CMO
Venu Konda, VP, Partnerships and Channels
Jim Reynolds, VP, Agency Development
Georgia Tregear, Director of Customer Success North America and LATAM
Tsvetta Kaleynska, Customer Success Director
Nadia Eslami, Agency Group Director
Michael Lehrer, Agency Group Director
Mary Kate Slattery, Partnership Sales Manager.
If you want to be put in touch with anyone, give us a tweet at @Brandwatch and we’ll be happy to help.
Come brunch with us
This year for SXSW 2017 we’re hosting an event you won’t want to miss. For starters, we can sniff out the best Bloody Marys within a five mile radius – if not more. Brandwatch was founded by Brits, after all.
Join the Brandwatch team for brunch and mingle with industry peers as you enjoy breakfast and a DIY Bloody Mary station at The Hightower Restaurant. Free to attend.
The Hightower Restaurant
1209 E 7th St, Austin, TX 78702
March 11th, 10.30-12.30.
Watch our CEO in action
Brandwatch CEO, Giles Palmer, will be on stage twice throughout the next few days. Here’s what he’s up to.
SXSW Interactive Panel Session:
The Future of Jobs is Dark & Full of Terror (Is it though?)
Studies on the future of employment often spark fear in the heart of anyone depending on a salary to keep the lights on and food on the table.
In France, this debate has recently been spotlighted with one of the major presidential candidate proposing a basic income plan as a response to the announced automation of jobs.
This panel seeks to adopt a critical approach on these predictions in order to try and capture the weak signals of automation, and consider its best possible answers.
How does AI leads to a paradigm shift in automation, especially in comparison to previous technological upheavals? What does it take to achieve a fair, profitable and sustainable human-machine complementarity?
Join our CEO Giles Palmer alongside Greg Milliken, Medi Merai, and Romain Delassus for this interactive panel on the future of jobs.
Saturday, March 11th – 3:30–4:30PM | Austin Convention Center Room 6AB
Brand Innovators Fireside Chat
Giles will be joined by Zach Overton, VP Experiential, Samsung for this fireside chat in which he’ll be moderating. Watch them cover how brands can stay relevant and drive growth in the digital age, and a whole lot more.
Sunday, March 12th – 1:35pm | Lamberts Restaurant, 401 West 2nd Street, Austin, TX 78701.
So, that’s it for now. Are you attending? We hope to see you there!
