SXSW 2020 Launches and Meet ‘n’ Greet Dates Are Happening In July

SXSW 2020 Meet ‘n’ Greet launch events have been locked in for Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane in July.

SXSW down under rep Phil Tripp will host the events as information nights for potential attendees ahead for Interactive, Music and Film attendees at SXSW between 13-22 March 2020.

2019 was a big year for Australians at SXSW. Over 750 Australian’s travelled to Austin, Texas for the music conference and festival, 54 Australian acts were included in the list of 1964 acts who played.

The Meet ‘n’ Greet timing is ideal for the opening of registrations and hotel reservations online August 1 at the lowest early bird rates as well as to have potential speakers and panellists upload their ideas for presentations prior to the July 19 PanelPicker cutoff. Band applications will close in October but here’s a secret Phil Tripp passes along “Because we strategise applying early for showcases, we turn in our music and promo while the eyes and ears of SXSW reviewing staff are fresh and we are prepared for the necessary visas and budgeting when we get early notice of acceptance. Most other bands from the US, UK and elsewhere wait until the last days of deadline when ears are crisped, eyes are weary and the volume is overwhelming with latecomers.”

“While our indie and mainstream films have consistently scored well in that festival, it is our tech and interactive prowess that has grown Australia’s brand so dynamically. We have a huge presence of startups, developers, VR/AR/MR producers, AI pioneers, advertising and marketing agencies & creatives, games and multimedia alchemists who have used SXSW as their launch pad into the creative content global market. 2019’s winner of the SXSW Interactive Innovation Award for Music and Audio is Melbourne-based nuraphone, the world’s only headphone that automatically self-learns and adapts to your unique hearing. Their packed stand presence throughtout the Trade Fair had a huge impact on sales and media attention at a crucial time in their growth.”

“AUSTRADE kickstarted the momentum in 2002 when I started with SXSW with an initial stand presence for the music industry as well as an investment in the iconic Aussie BBQ and a series of national ‘SXSW Bootcamps’ by teleconference in each state. They maintained their annual investment in SXSW, switching to multimedia, games and startups as they emerged on the content landscape. AUSTRADE realised that intellectual property as an export industry had the potential to exceed resource mining like iron, coal, uranium, diamonds, timber and copper and that creative content was totally renewable and growable,” Tripp said.
