SXSW IRL – the reopening of emerging tech’s Mecca

Nigel Gwilliam is here to fill us in on the action

Pre-eminent emerging technology conference, South By Southwest is back IRL for the first time in 3 years.

While there are thousands of participants in hundreds of sessions over the course of ten days, key themes tend to emerge.

Gaming, disinformation, AI and lab grown chicken all featured, but the key megatrend this year was Web3 meets the Metaverse. Is it all hype? Yes and no. Join this session to find out more.
