SXSW brings thousands of likeminded people from across the USA to Austin, providing a unique chance for everyone to get together - that just doesn't happen at conferences in San Francisco or New York.

This year over 1500 International delegates are expected to make the journey to Austin, including leading digital firms from the UK with UKTI's Mission to SXSW and delegates from Australia, Canada, Ireland, Sweden, South Africa, Singapore, Taiwan, Germany, New Zealand, Japan, Holland, Spain, India amongst many, many others.

What better way to bring together the best people in digital from across the USA and across the world? It's a great chance to meet lots of interesting people and find out about the digital industry, trends and innovations from across the world.

Grab a Pimms and some cake and discover some of the opportunities beyond your own borders.
