IPA hosts pre SXSWi drinks

In anticipation of SXSW the IPA is hosting pre-festival drinks for all those attending at Graphic Bar (W1F 9HT) at 6.30pm on Wednesday 4th March. In addition to the UK drinks, the IPA will be hosting a pop-up bar in Austin itself at a central location close to the Convention Centre for agencies to gather together and digest the day’s talks over a couple of drinks.


The IPA will also be hosting a tumblr which will provide content and highlights throughout the festival, as well as being a platform for attendees to share their experiences upon their return. If you or someone you know are heading to Austin this year and would like to report back on your findings, we would love to hear from you. Please contact

Says Nigel Gwilliam, Consultant Head of Media and Emerging Tech, IPA, “From wearable tech, to artificial intelligence and The Internet of Things; the SXSW Interactive Festival really does provide unparalleled insights into the latest technologies and digital trends and crucially how they impact on our industry. The IPA is therefore very much looking forward to attending the 2015 Festival and to seeing many of you at our IPA drinks both before and during the festival.”

If you would like to be kept up to date with IPA activity on the ground in Austin, 13th – 17th March, please contact
