The flights are booked, tickets secured, ESTA application approved (just about…) but bags nowhere near packed yet. Our Head of Brand Experience, Craig, and I (Social Media Strategist) are extremely excited to be attending this year’s SXSW festival to undoubtedly have our minds blown by the latest in tech innovations, emerging trends and creative insights from across the globe.
If you’re unfamiliar with SXSW and what it’s all about, check out this video:
The opportunity to develop and share creative ideas with our clients is without question the number one reason I love working at WAA Chosen, and that’s why attending the world’s biggest festival of creativity along with thousands of like-minded people is a big tick on the bucket list for me.
Over the six days, we’ll be immersing ourselves into the minds of some truly astonishing thinkers and creators from around the world. We’ll return inspired and ready to apply those ideas to help our clients and their businesses achieve more success. No pressure, eh?
One notable speaker I’m particularly excited for is Gary Vaynerchuk (entrepreneur, social media agency owner, businessman) who I have admired for quite some time for his thought leadership in the social media space. From the future of virtual and augmented reality, to the latest news on social media algorithms, chatbots and content marketing; the sheer enormity of opportunities and events at the festival is unrivalled.
Before I forget, myself and Craig will be documenting live (and gloating) about our time at SXSW 2018, so make sure you’re following WAA Chosen on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, LinkedIn, Bebo and MySpace* to check out what we’re up to throughout the week!
