IPA returns to SXSWi Festival

The IPA will once again be attending SXSW Interactive Festival and will be offering delegates support on the ground in Austin along with curating their learnings and experiences.


This year’s festival takes place from 11th- 15th March and is expected to attract over 70,000 visitors to hear some of the world’s experts in emerging technologies and digital creativity share their knowledge through various presentations, meet-ups and workshops.

The IPA will be revamping its SXSW blog and if you are attending and would be interested in contributing please contact 

Says Nigel Gwilliam,Consultant Head of Media and Emerging Tech, IPA,SXSW Interactive remains the pre-eminent emerging technology festival on the planet. For five days some of the most influential and inspiring people from the world of tech and way beyond take the stage to explore the increasingly tech-driven world in which we live. It’s much more than an advertising festival but the content of ‘South By’ foretells much that will impact our industry in the coming months and years.”
