Thank You, San Francisco!
SXSW kicked off its Pre-Event Community Meet Up tour with a stop in sunny San Francisco on Monday evening, January 13th. The energy was high, people came with big smiles and open minds, the positive vibe was truly contagious! My favorite part of these meet ups has to be watching SXSW veterans connect with first timers as they give tips on how to navigate through the festival. My other favorite part is meeting the attendees and potential attendees, and hearing about all the fascinating ideas floating around in their heads. They’re go-getters, they’re creative, they’re supportive, and they’re just so darn nice!
A big thanks to Slim’s for hosting the event, to managers Chris and Dana and the rest of the Slim’s staff for making sure that everything ran smoothly. As well, thanks to the lovely Porter Novelli staff, Becky and Molly, for checking all our guests in. We couldn’t have done it without you!
We hope to catch you at one of the upcoming Meet Ups. But, if not, see you in March in Austin!
