I’ve been presented with a very exciting opportunity to be a part of a panel at the 2015 SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas in March. The festival is a five-day summit featuring presentations and panels from those in emerging technology, websites, video games and start-ups. The mission of SXSW Interactive is rooted in innovation, inspiration and creativity with a focus on the sharing of new ideas.

The Points Guy has been selected to be a part of a panel alongside Wendy Perrin of TripAdvisor and Arabella Bowen of Fodor’s Travel organized by Fodor’s Travel. Our panel is called “Put a Face to the Name: Personalities Build Brands.” We’ll discuss how our travel brands showcase personalities to facilitate consumer trust and interaction.

With so many thought leaders proposing compelling panels and presentations, SXSW conducts a Panel Picker where the public (that’s you!) has a voice in what sessions are scheduled. So we need your help to make this happen. Do you want to see TPG at SXSW? Please go to the SXSW Interactive Panel Picker and vote for our panel. You’ll have to sign in and create an account on the upper righthand corner of the site first, but it’s quick and easy.

SXSW Interactive - March 13-17, 2015
SXSW Interactive – Austin, Texas – March 13-17, 2015

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that our panel’s chosen and the TPG team will definitely plan some fun reader events if we go. We’re counting on you, our TPG readers to get us there, so please take a minute to sign-up and vote. (Hopefully) See you in Austin- one of my favorite cities in America!
