When you get on a plane to SXSW there's a 100% chance you're sitting next to the next big thing in tech/music or film. Get talking, and they may impart some advice on navigating the chaos in your changeover that is Atlanta airport!
Sadly we didn't get to meet the President who was also in town, but we were privy to beautiful weather, a whole host of food trucks, impromptu dance-offs, stand-up and musicians on 6th Street - just some of the magic that makes Austin special.
Social Risk Defenders Susan, Jess, Jimmie, Adam and Imogen stormed Interactive as well as SX Health & MedTech Expo where we engaged with lots of interesting people from all walks of life including astronauts, app developers, members of the digerati (and Grumpy Cat!) to mention a few...
Our time in Austin also saw CEO and Founder of Crisp Thinking Adam Hildreth deliver a brilliant presentation in Brand Strategy Hour, part of the Interactive Conference. Here he spoke about the latest developments in Social Media Moderation, Social Risk Monitoring and Image & Video Moderation supported by eye-opening stats we've been collecting over the past ten years.
There were several highlights for us at this year's conference, but if we had to pick one, it would have to be getting nominated for Best New Platform or Service by Juice Pharma at SX Health & MedTech Expo!
We want to say a special thank you to the Freeman Gang Bibi Javed, John Abrego and Roland Garcia for all your help as well as everyone who helped support the event and hope to see you next year!
