It’s an honor that someone as deeply embedded in the interactive industry like Hugh from SXSW Interactive would come in from Austin to see what’s going on in the DC experiential world.

Brightline Interactive announces the next DC Experiential Meetup will be held Tuesday, July 2nd at the Digital Exchange at 6:30 PM. This Meetup will feature Hugh Forrest, Director of SXSW Interactive, as well as Tod Plotkin, Founder of What’s Next DC.
The focus of this Meetup will be how agencies can land their experiences in front of the largest interactive audiences, on the stages of the largest conferences like SXSW and What’s Next in Washington, DC.
“It’s an honor that someone as deeply embedded in the interactive industry like Hugh from SXSW Interactive would come in from Austin to see what’s going on in the DC experiential world,” began Erik Muendel, CEO and Creative Director of Brightline Interactive. “Hard working individuals from the local tech scene like Tod, who ran the extremely successful DC chapter of the What’s Next conference, are what put the District on the map, in a world where tech startups are no longer confined to Silicon Valley.”
To RSVP for this event, join the DC Experiential Meetup group here.
Hugh will be sharing best practices for submitting session ideas to SXSW Interactive via its infamous PanelPicker. The PanelPicker is a two-step, partially crowdsourced online process that allows the SXSW community to have a significant voice in programming SXSWedu, SXSW Eco and SXSW Interactive, Film, and Music conference activities (presentations, panels, discussions, demonstrations, etc.). The entry process for the 2014 SXSW PanelPicker will begin July 1, so this presentation will be particularly relevant.
Tod, who recently held the What’s Next DC Conference, will discuss how experiential agencies can best pitch their ideas, including factors like social engagement, case studies, and lessons learned.
The Digital Exchange is a studio annex across the street from Brightline’s Headquarters, at 816 North St. Asaph Street in Old Town Alexandria. The location is a 10-minute walk from Braddock Road metro, and ample parking is available on-site.
