IPA returns to SXSWi Festival

The IPA will be attending this year’s SXSW Interactive Festival and will once again be offering delegates support on the ground in Austin, as well as virtual support via its blog.


This year’s Festival takes place from 13th – 17th March and is expected to attract over 70,000 visitors to hear some of the world’s experts in emerging technologies and digital creativity share their knowledge through various presentations, meet-ups and workshops.

The IPA SXSW blog will provide content and highlights throughout the festival, as well as a platform for attendees to share their experiences upon their return. If you would like to contribute to the blog, please contact In Austin, the IPA will be hosting a pop-up bar 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 is also providing agency attendees with the opportunity to get to know one other before they travel to Texas at an SXSW get-together in the weeks ahead of the festival, details for this will be sent out soon.
