I can’t believe it’s that time of year again… SXSWi. What does that mean for you? If you are attending the conference, you are probably sitting back, enjoying a drink, and relaxing since you finished all of your planning well in advance. Or, if you are like most, it means you are still trying to figure out what you are doing and where you are going in between sessions. Have no fear; our team at Blackbaud has a couple of suggestions for you:
Saturday, Sunday and Monday are heavy hitter days for SXSWi. Big keynote speakers like Elon Musk, and more sessions, workshops and book signings than any SXSW do-good-er could dream of attending in a weekend. All of this tends to take its toll on attendees, we understand.
That’s precisely why we have partnered up with Beacon Lounge to provide you with delicious afternoon pick-me-ups through our Sugar Shock Snack Break. Saturday through Monday from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m., we will be providing an array of cookies and soft drinks, for free, to help boost you through those afternoon sessions. Stop by to make sure you get your afternoon refuel before finishing up the afternoon sessions and evening’s festivities!
Hashtags to Stay in the Know
Whether you will be at SXSW or not, there is always an overwhelming amount of information coming from the conference. Be sure to follow two important hashtags that will help curate interesting, and hopefully relevant, information for you: #SXSWi and #sxgood.

So, breathe easy. At least part of your afternoon is planned. We look forward to seeing you in the Beacon Lounge for our Sugar Shock Snack Break. And don’t forget the free wi-fi, couches, and most importantly, OUTLETS for refueling all of your gadgets!
