Feb 19 2019
Have you seen this year’s lineup?
With only a few weeks to go, it is finally time to start getting geared for this year’s SXSW. The 31st annual, much-anticipated event taking place in its customary city of Austin has so much to offer.The team members from Meetingmax, SXSW’s official event housing software provider, will be there too and have highlighted a couple of sessions that reflect a lot of our company’s why, who, and how.
Meetingmax takes workplace culture to the next level and is a vital part of our successful growth. As winners of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures, we support and encourage you to explore the sessions available in the Future Workplace Track.
If there is an opportunity to take back one positive change to your work environment then these carefully selected tracks lead by those in the know are a good place to start.
While there are plenty to choose from we like the looks of:
- Creating Community and finding your People
- The New Responsibility of Business Leaders: Equality
- Bring Your Human to Work
With both our colleagues and clients we enjoy a monthly get-together over a book/podcast/TEDTalk etc. to keep motivated, aligned and grow as individuals and as a group. Gathering Minds is a time where we come together to share thoughts around a chosen subject and over the years we have had the opportunity of exploring a few of Brené Brown’s books. We won’t be missing this Featured Session with this #1 New York Times Bestselling author on March 8th from 11 am – 12 pm.
Another best selling author who is a must-see is Neil Patel. This top web influencer’s session titled The Future of Enterprise Marketing is one for any marketer, business owner, event professional, and destination marketer. In this digital age it so important to stay current with how to leverage your social media marketing and SEO. Also happening March 8th 11 am – 12 pm so choose wisely 😉

Join him on March 9th from 9:30 am – 10:30 am for this highly anticipated Featured Session sharing some of the most important lessons he has learned over the years. We could all learn a thing or two from the man that built Starbucks into what it is today. This is definitely one not to miss with over 1300 people already favoriting this icon’s hour at SXSW.
The rate at which technology advances can be overwhelming. As a tech company, we get it! The firsts steps are to learn, explore and understand what is happening in the various industries.
