South by Southwest – St. Louis Style

Every year South by Southwest is all the rage. Leading up to the Austin, Texas-based event, music, technology and social media enthusiasts speculate on what may or may not happen and if any the announcements will have an affect on their line of work. What big news will be made? What new revelations will we walk away with? We aren’t all lucky to attend the event in person, but we stayed glued to our social feeds for the latest updates.

This year, we’re assessing what we’ve learned from the SXSW experts themselves and putting our own twist on things – St. Louis style. Tonight, social media advocates from around St. Louis will come together to give their take on what went down at SXSW this year and suggest where we go from here. We’ll hear experiences from local SXSW attendees and discuss how emerging trends will affect our everyday marketing efforts.

If you’re still on the fence about attending tonight’s SXSTL event, we’re pretty confident it’s going to be a great time. #SXSTL (for you Twitter tweeps), brought to us by Social Media Club St. Louis and Fleishman-Hillard, has over 300 registered attendees – our own little slice of the SXSW experience. We hope to see you there – look for us!

And if you can’t make it, keep an eye out on our Facebook and Twitter page for photos from the event.
