SXSW Interactive 2019: Where to join Team McKinsey at the top events

By Peri Kadaster, Director of Marketing & Communications, McKinsey Digital Labs

SXSW is one of our favorite times of year. The conferences — all of them (Music, Interactive, and Film) — are always incredible, eschewing massive amphitheater style conferences for one, where the city of Austin is as much at the forefront as any speaker who takes the stage.

Every year since we added our Austin studio, the McKinsey team at SXSW has been growing, and this year, we have more going on than ever.

We’ve got half a dozen speakers who will be gracing the stage on topics ranging from AI to product development to design. We’ll also have a booth that includes a DIY robot-building experience for those of you interested in learning more about joining our team.

Details on all this and more below; we look forward to seeing you later this week! Check our social media accounts (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter) for the latest and greatest updates live from Austin.
