For 10 days next month Austin, Texas will become the epicentre for the global media and tech industries when SXSW again opens its doors.

The music, film and tech extravaganza helped launch Twitter and Foursquare in recent years, so it’s easy to see why it has a reputation as one of the world’s most exciting events for digital marketers.

For the third year running Econsultancy will be heading down to Texas for SXSW, and this year we’ll be hosting two roundtables in partnership with RAPP and Adometry.

There are still spaces left to attend both roundtables, which take place on the opening day of SXSW (March 7) at the Capital Factory in Austin. Read on for more details and information on how to request an invite…

Digital Transformation Roundtable (11am – 1pm)

Aimed at those leading transformation within brands, our Digital Transformation Roundtable is designed to give you both insight into the trends and findings from our latest research, and the opportunity to discuss with your peers the issues that you’re facing.

This private roundtable event will bring together 15 senior leaders who are spearheading digital transformation within their organizations.

We’ll start the morning with an exclusive look at Econsultancy’s recent research into evolving organizational structures before transitioning into a roundtable session.

Trends and When They Matter Roundtable (1pm – 3pm)

The roundtable on Trends and When They Matter is designed to offer attendees insight into the trends themselves with findings from our latest research, and the opportunity to discuss the issues that you’re facing with your peers.

The conversation will ultimately be driven by attendees, but will include a discussion of these essential questions:

  • Does every marketing department really need to pay attention to the leading edge?
  • What has changed the way you go to market in the last 12 months? 
  • What new technologies should I care about and when?

As well as hosting the roundtables, Econsultancy is teaming up with our friends at ethology and SoDA for a second year to host a SXSW soiree at the Dogwood Bar on Monday 10th March from 5pm-8pm. 

It’s a great chance to catch up with the movers and shakers from brands and agencies and make new contacts, plus there’s an open bar!

Tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, so please reserve your place here.
