This year and for the very first time, our expert Nicolas Diacono flew to Austin, Texas, to participate to the well known event South by South West Festival.
In addition to the film and music aspects, which are the historical pillars of the festival, #SXSW really is a prospective event. This meetup, which takes places from March 9th (right after #CommerceReloaded 2018) till March 18th, focuses on interactive and digital medias. It has become a very inspirational hub nourished by brilliant conferences led by very high caliber speakers (such as  Elon Musk, Spike Lee, Michael Dell or Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London). Views expressed are as wide as Healthsportfood, social impact, VR & AR, startups, new techdesign, coding, or governments.

In a nutshel, SXSW is a creative and boosting explosion!
