Fancy going to the world’s biggest interactive festival in Austin next year?

25th June 2019

In recent years, Bristol Media’s Chair Chris Thurling has led a very successful delegation to SXSW, the world’s largest interactive festival in Austin, Texas. For five days in March, it’s the only place to be to hear from the world’s leading creative and tech companies about forthcoming trends in our sector.

We’re now starting to think about SXSW 2020. With tickets going on sale on 1st August, we’re trying to gauge how many of our members may like to be part of the Bristol Media delegation next year? The interactive festival will run from 13-17th March (flying from Heathrow on 12th and returning on 18th). The flights are considerably cheaper at the moment (£473 economy & £827 premium economy) so if you’re thinking about going, you might be wise to book your flights now whilst the prices are so low! To give you an idea, the cost of the flights, accommodation and SXSW pass is in the region of £2,750 (travelling economy) – £3,050 (premium economy) plus subsistence.
