As SXSW rolls into Austin, it’s a great time to capture an audience with a party. One of our clients recently celebrated an acquisition and wanted to host an unofficial SXSW event to connect with their partners and clients who were in town during the festival.

Our friends at Austin Venue Collective helped us secure the perfect SXSW venue, and we planned a fun networking party for 350 people. One of our favorite details at this SXSW partner event was the swag bag: a festival survival kit. Rather than give away a bunch of miscellaneous items, we worked with their designer to come up with a branded bag of festival essentials: hand sanitizer, sunglasses, Advil(!), a rain poncho, and backup battery.
