What can we learn from the South by Southwest 2016 music, film, and interactive festivals? In this episode of GatherGeeks, David Adler, C.E.O. of BizBash, sits down with South by Southwest reporters, planners, and activators to hear literally dozens of ideas and tips that anyone who produces events should tune into. SXSW is the intersection of events, marketing, experience, and fun, all wrapped into an evolving 30-year festival. Adler, along with hosts Brandt Krueger and Audrey Gallien, discuss swag walls, “stitched selfies,” the magic number of influencers, and reports on big brands such as Mophie, Samsung, American Greetings, Gatorade, AMC, USA Network, Thrillist, Pandora, Kasper, Scotts Miracle Grow, Marriott, Universal Music Group, and more. Guests include Cindy Lo, the founder and owner of Red Velvet Events and a SXSW expert and veteran; Ian Zelaya, BizBash’s SXSW reporter; Ben Hindman, event strategist and C.E.O. of Splash; and Greg O'Dell, C.E.O. of Events DC.
