UKTI Mission to SXSW: Northern Powerhouse


UKTI are supporting companies from the Northern Powerhouse region to attend the SXSW conference in the Interactive, Film and Music sectors. They also plan to hold a Northern Powerhouse showcase at the British Music Embassy showcasing bands from the region, and to use the opportunity to promote the Northern Powerhouse region and its creative talent to the rest of the world.

SXSW Interactive Conference (March 11-15, 2016) is an incubator of cutting-edge technologies, digital creativity and unforgettable inspirational experiences that only SXSW can deliver.

SXSW Film Festival & Conference (March 11-19, 2016) champions the vitality, innovation and opportunity that drive entertainment and media, and boldly tackles the evolution of all aspects of “film” today, down to its very definition.

South by Southwest Music Festival and Conference Celebrating 30 years in 2016, SXSW Music (March 15-20, 2016) offers unmatched access to ideas and global viewpoints on an increasingly borderless industry and showcases over 2,200 acts ranging from the unsigned to the iconic.
