This year the SXSW Music Conference will offer attendees a JOB FAIR, TRADE SHOW, GEAR EXPO, GAMING EXPO, HEALTH EXPO, ART EXPO, Music And Film Festivals plus have plenty of activities for advertising executives, Marketing professionals, Information Technology geeks, nerds and hackers and plenty of barbecue for the many industry members, guest speakers, aspiring artists and entrepreneurs alike.
last year, more than 150,000 attendees, 30,000 worldwide advertising and marketing creative professionals, 3,000 volunteers and at least 2,000 local, regional, national and international artists have made arrangements to take part in 800+ educational sessions and present in 100 stages and this year promises to be even bigger so stay tuned for a full report from TheWirelessCowboy.tv and WPLV24 on those people, products and processes that will enhance our Intellectual Property Monetization theme.
So, how long have you been waiting for your BIG BREAK?
AT SXSW 2015there are countless networking opportunities to explore that question however, I will highlight a few of the most important to young entrepreneurs and artists ready to MONETIZE their digital content .
"MONE TIZE" OR SHOULD I say Magnetize....
The Pebble watch company earlier this week RAISED $500,000 in their first 15 minutes of a crowd-funding campaign onKickStarter and finished their first day with almost $10,000,000 million dollars becoming the fastest campaign to reach their funding goal and an ALL TIME SuperStar both in time and sales. Remember that in total for last year there where ONLY 6 million smart watches sold ( between Samsung Gear S, Motorola Moto...) but the Apple watch, which is coming in April is expected to sell 40 million TO EXPLODE the wearables market... so I am not sure if the Pebble watch will survive, but my point is that regardless, it has found a MAGNET and is capitalizing on it with their CROWD... are you?
While the JOB FAIR is a must until you find YOUR MAGNET, It is the TRADE SHOW that brings the biggest crowds since it gives you a chance to experience the latest technology from other entrepreneurs JUST LIKE YOU in the Arts and Entertainment industry for Music, Film, TV, Theater, Gaming and Health. Why be famous if you are not healthy.
