SXSW (South by Southwest) is a conference and festival in Austin, Texas that is being held March 8-17th. It’s huge conference filled emerging talent and new products, in the fields of technology, music and films.
People from all over the country who are involved in these industries flock to Austin each spring to check it all out. There are over 5,000 separate events going on during the nine day period. From all sorts of live music to film screenings to technology, marketing and social media sessions, SXSW clearly is the place to be for those in the know (or those who aspire to be).
There are informative sessions in entrepreneurialism and business, culture and entertainment, design and development, community and activism, work and career, gaming and game development, science and space exploration, content and distribution and more.
Aside from all the awesome opportunities that SXSW-goers have, they also receive A LOT of promotional products.
Mashable asked it’s followers to tweet pictures of the best SXSW swag they received with the hashtag #mashSXSW.
I encourage you to do a twitter search for that hashtag and check out some of the cool promotional products that other companies are using to promote their brand at this huge event. Maybe you’ll see something that you can use for your next event.
