Hey smarty pants, thanks for stopping by!
We're glad you're here! We appreciate you taking the time to check us out and learn more about why Raleigh, and the Triangle region of North Carolina, is the smartest place to work, live, play and learn. This page will tell you all you need to know about our marketing efforts at South By Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas, March 7 – 16, 2014.
SXSW is kind of a big deal. It attracts 49,000 participants during the 10-day festival. Its' Interactive Trade Show showcases cutting-edge technologies, digital creativity, and features compelling presentations from the brightest minds in emerging technology. Scores of exciting networking events are hosted by industry leaders, and the show provides an unbeatable glimpse at the best new websites, video games and startup ideas the tech community has to offer.
SXSW provides the perfect backdrop for us to promote Raleigh, and attract talent and tech companies to the area. It's a pretty big stage for just a few #SmartyPants, but this isn't our first time at the rodeo. 2014 marks the second year that we've gone to Austin for SXSW. In case you don't remember the awesome folks jamming with musical triangles and smart glasses; take a look at our effort last year.
We had such a great time, we wanted to return this year and increase our presence and impact. So we're organizing a delegation of #smartypants to come with us to SXSW to connect with entrepreneurs, tech talent and companies, to promote Raleigh and our assets. Did we mention we're bringing some of the city's business and entrepreneurial leaders down with us in a Raleigh RV? If you are planning to attend, we want to connect with you. Please take a moment and complete the form below so we can connect with you beforehand and once on the ground.
Stay tuned, we will have more updates on our effort this year and we look forward to you being a part of it! You can follow along with our journey, and participation in the trade show, with the hash tag #Raleigh2SXSW
