SXSW 2018 Panel Voting Open

SXSW 2018 Panel Voting Open

Voting for SXSW 2018 panels have just opened and our founder Mike Zimmerlich is on two of them.  Check them out below! How to Land and Enhance Brand Partnerships Voting Link: http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/75681 Description: The endorsement relationship between the artist and a company has been changing. Brands are more selective who they work with and asking for free product is no longer going to cut it. Time to think outside of the box on getting their attention and how to create ‘win-win’ situations such as Snapchat takeovers and cross-collaborative live streaming videos. This panel addresses how to successfully pitch to brands and the symbiotic role that these partnerships play in an artist’s career. Speakers: Michael Zimmerlich, President, 80/20 Records Gabe Kubanda, Musician/Co-Founder, Epic Proportions Tour Peter Sotos, Owner, Epic Proportions Tour Emiko Carlin, Social Media Liason, Hammond Organ Co Exploring Unique Ideas with Festivals and Games Voting Link: http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/77014 Description: This panel will explore some new and unique ideas for changing the festival experience by augmenting it with the latest video games. Booths where attendees can beat the heat, play games, and get away for the crowds for a bit. This presents unique opportunities for game companies to get in front of the festival attendees and show off their latest titles, and festival owners to create new unique experiecnes at their festival and explore this new revenue stream from game manufacturers.
