On Saturday, March 9, members of Raleigh’s Office of Economic Development and Innovation team and area partner organizations head to Austin, TX for the annual South by Southwest Interactive Tradeshow and Festival. The purpose of the trip is to host a booth at the Interactive Tradeshow which will feature a new activation at SXSW, asking attendees to “Picture Yourself in Raleigh.” 

Raleigh is a diverse and inclusive community as it relates to people, business, industry and culture and this year’s activation is aimed to promote brand awareness, drive interest to our culture and entrepreneurial community, and represent the business ecosystem. SXSW attendees will have the chance to step into Raleigh and experience what makes Raleigh a special place to visit, do business, and attract top talent through the “Picture Yourself in Raleigh” activation. Attendees will get to interact with a 12ft tall mural created in partnership between the Raleigh Murals Project, Gino Reyes and team at The Assembly to represent the depth of our ecosystem and community culture. Attendees can sample three select beers from Trophy Brewing Company and coffee from Slingshot Coffee all while appreciating Nate Sheaffer’s 10-foot “Raleigh” sign.
