The definitive Digiday guide to what’s in and what’s out at SXSW 2017
The party has begun: Brands, agencies, social stars, pet influencers, filmmakers, musicians, the former Vice President of the United States and Warren G are flocking to South by Southwest this week to talk about technology and creativity, and to get as much free stuff as possible.
