The newly branded SouthWiRED will showcase our hometown Atlanta talent while also bringing together pacesetters from around the South to strengthen education, networking and content opportunities.

Digital Atlanta, one of the Southeast’s largest and longest-running digital conferences, unveiled its new name – SouthWiRED – at an announcement party earlier this week. SouthWiRED, taking place October 6-10, 2014, will star the South’s top innovators and will be fueled by a killer agenda of top-notch content, unparalled networking and cross collaboration.

Held annually in Atlanta since 2009, the conference has grown in popularity, attracting more than 1,000 attendees from Birmingham, Ala. to Orlando Fla. to Charleston, S.C. In honor of its fifth anniversary, the conference decided to expand its reach by rebranding and re-fueling its weeklong, one-of-a-kind experience.

"As we celebrate our fifth year as the region's premier digital technology conference, we're advancing our organization to the next level,” said Kashi Sehgal, executive director of SouthWiRED. “The newly branded SouthWiRED will showcase our hometown Atlanta talent while also bringing together pacesetters from around the South to strengthen education, networking and content opportunities. Overall, our new brand and fifth anniversary will celebrate all the amazing innovation and talent that exist in the South."

Over the course of the five-day conference, SouthWiRED attendees will have the ability to learn straight from the biggest innovators in technology and digital. The conference offers content for every industry professional, ranging from education technology (EdTech), entertainment, financial technology (FinTech), health technology (Health Tech), marketing, mobile, social enterprise, social media, startup and user experience (UX). Whether you’re starting your first job or you’re a mid-career professional, SouthWiRED has content and education to help you grow. Early-bird registration opens July 1, 2014.

“SouthWiRED is more than just auditoriums and presentations. It's also about the entire experience. Attendees are going to hear a lot of great content and make valuable connections in a cool space at Atlantic Station, with an incredible view of Atlanta's skyline,” said operations director Minka Wiggins. “We’re expecting a packed house, so make sure to register before the conference sells out.”

SouthWiRED invites a diverse array of people with a passion for the South’s digital industry to attend, speak, volunteer and sponsor. For more information, visit http://www.southwired.org.
