I am heading to Austin later this week for SXSW INTERACTIVE, March 13-17. What can we expect to see?
Wearable Technology will be huge. Transportation innovation everywhere (think self driving cars, alternatively fueled vehicles, automobiles that can achieve flight, revolutionary ride-sharing programs). The uberfication of everything. The continued growth of the startup economy. Our rapid approach to a future where all things are connected via the Internet of Things. Robots galore…even a Robot Petting Zoo. Safety trends addressed. Social Media presenters will tap into the dark side with topics such as cyber-bullying and social media skills of terrorist organizations. And so much more, wrapped into more than 800 sessions and events.
SX HEALTH + MED TECH EXPO will launch this year, targeting innovations and disruptions of the health and medical industry.
SOUTHBITES, in its second year, will be exploring how technology is transforming the food industry. Technologies will be introduced. Star studded chef and restaurateur panelists and speakers will be presenting simultaneously across the city of Austin. There will be a SouthBites Trailer park with famous food trucks from around the country.
Stay tuned as I report on the events and innovations that apply to lifestyle, food, and whatever surprises appear to be around the corner. SXSW is going to be one huge geek fest, and I plan to share the cool stuff. If you are familiar with this show and would like to request specific coverage or closeups, message me through the blog to let me know.
