Our annual partner (and original inspiration) SXSW just completed the Interactive (tech) portion of the SXSW 2023 festival, with an incredible number of speakers and presentations spanning AI, metaverse, digital identity and trust, cybersecurity, Web3, climate tech, energy, gaming, quantum computing, and much, much more. We understand not everyone could attend, and even attendees could only participate in small fraction of the content—so how can you learn more about the tech highlights of SXSW Interactive? If you’re in Austin, one way is to join our in-person meetup event on March 23 at which Hugh Forrest, Co-President and Chief Programming Officer of SXSW, and a large number of SXSW (and Austin Forum!) attendees will come and share their top highlights. After these quick highlights, we’ll have a meetup-format event to discuss what they've heard--and what they want the Austin Forum to cover in the year ahead! So, whether you attended SXSW or not, you’ll enjoy this event! And for the non-local folks and the ones who cannot attend in person, we have an Austin Forum Upload podcast reviewing SXSW Interactive with Paul O'Brien, CEO and founder of MediaTech Ventures and a longtime attendee of SXSW, discussing his and our observations, highlights, importance, and resulting recommendations for companies, professional, and everyone for attending SXSW Interactive.
