Over the past few years, Austin, Texas has been a hotbed for creativity, technology and brand engagement thanks to, in large part, SXSW. Beginning with 700 registrants and ballooning to over 161,000 attendees at its peak, the now-expansive event was the only festival of its kind for a while, breaking culture-moving acts like Kendrick Lamar and hosting panels featuring every famous face from Jon Favreau to Fat Joe.
