Last summer many of you answered my call for support to host a SXSW blogger meet up. I am muy excited to announce that at South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive 2016 you will find me hosting the SXSW 2016 Multicultural Blogger and Content Creator Meet Up. ¡Mil gracias to everyone who voted for this meet up during the SXSW Panel Picker process!
“Today, SXSW Interactive is a convergence point across technology, user experience,
marketing, startups and science celebrities, representing a glimpse of the future.
As the importance of interactive platforms increases in our daily lives, so it does in
Austin, with the interactive portion of the conference now hosting more than 30,000
attendees.” –AdAge, March 9, 2015

I’ve been a blogger a.k.a content creator for over five years now. The ways that content is created has changed a lot and continues to change quickly. Hosting the Multicultural Blogger and Content Creator networking meet up is about gathering these online influencers who are taking advantage of attending SXSW Interactive. If they are attending, they understand that it is a place to learn, grow, connect and see what’s coming in the tech, sports, music, education industries and more. As content creators, it’s our job to share stories and news about what affects our unique communities. We are also responsible for sharing our own stories. No one else will tell them for us. Let’s not get left behind when it comes to adaptation. Come to discuss how to grow, integrate and harness your own audiences.
When: Sunday, March 13, 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM
Where: JW Marriott, Room 208, 110 E. 2nd St., Austin, TX
