It's official! We will be heading down to Austin to show Dark Deception at SXSW March 7-9. We are planning to expand the demo that we showed at Apps World and setup multiple displays to accommodate the larger crowd. I'm personally looking forward to some Texas heat and BBQ :).
Meeting the gamers is probably the best part of exhibiting at conventions. We tend to feed off of their excitement and energy, similar to a sports team. We had a business woman at Apps World tell us that our energy level was a refreshing change from what she was used to seeing. I'll take that as a compliment :).
This will be our first time attending SXSW. I've heard a lot of good things about it. I'm looking forward to seeing some of the cool new mobile apps at the Interactive Festival. Unfortunately, attending SXSW was a last minute decision and, of course, I found out that pretty much every hotel in the vicinity of downtown Austin is booked. We will have to make a 20 mile commute from our hotel in Round Rock. Not too bad, but would have loved to have been able to walk to the show. I'm hoping to hit up some of the much talked about SXSW parties after the expo hall closes.
