BookBrewer at SXSW Interactive
Every year 30,000 fans of technology, film and music gather in Austin, Texas for the SXSW festival. This year BookBrewer is thrilled to be part of not just one, but two major SXSW events. If you're going to the conference we hope you will stop by and say hello.
Events to plan for:
TechCocktail #Startup Life
First, we'll have a table at TechCocktail's #Startuplife Celebration at The Stage on Sixth, 508 East 6th Street. Think of it as a hip cocktail party mixed with a bunch of really interesting startups showcasing their stuff. The party is free for attendees, but you have to register to get in. It sold out quickly last year so don't wait until the last minute.
Second, we're attending as an "alternate" in the SXSW Interactive Accelerator on March 12 & 13 at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Austin. More than 670 companies applied, and 66 were chosen for the opportunity to present. You can view the full list of finalists here. Should we make it into the presenter list, we'll be promoting a new NewsBooks program that we've piloted with The Denver Post and The Huffington Post.
Of course, nobody would care about BookBrewer if it weren't for our amazing authors who now number in the thousands. We'll be taking copies of some of the best BookBrewed books, both in print and on eReaders, to show you off to the public. Let us know ahead of time if there's something about your book that would make it of interest to the SXSW crowd and we'll do our best to include it in what we showcase.
