This Thursday, I am flying out to the live music capital of the world, a.k.a. city of Austin, TX, to attend SXSW for the first time in over a decade. The last time I attended was for the music conference back when I was in the biz. Those were good times, but wow have times changed. The interactive conference didn’t even exist back then. So, this year I am going to scope out the event that everyone seems to go to, and raves about. I promise though I will do my best not to pollute my twitter stream too much
The first stop in Austin for me is participating in New Marketing Lab’s Bootcamp. I will be joining Justin Levy & Chris Brogan along with representatives from Hubspot and Radian6, at AMD’s headquarters for a one day, hands on, keyboard level training bootcamp on social marketing. I will be covering “Email Marketing in the New Web.” If you are interested in attending there are still a few slots left, and as a presenter if you register and use the code “camper” it will drop the price from $395 to $99. You can sign up here.
Thursday night we will also be holding an event, taking advantage of the calm before the storm. For those of you who will be coming in town, make sure you stay tuned into my twitter stream for announcements on details. We will be holding an open bar, with appetizers courteousy of Blue Sky Factory, but details will be coming out shortly, and through twitter exclusively. I am www.twitter.com/gregcangialosi.
After Thursday, it’s non-stop action, sessions, events, parties, etc. I look forward to taking it all in. If you are going to be at SXSW, drop me a comment or shoot me an email at gcangialosi [at] gmail [dot] com. Lets link up. I look forward to it.
