SXSW 2022 is just around the corner, and we’re very proud to announce that Arena Live Chat will be part of the online event.
How did that happen?, you might ask.
This year, the SXSW Conference will be in a hybrid format for ten days (11 – 20 March 2022).
In the online edition, Arena Live Chat will be there making it easier for thousands of attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors to connect with each other, as well as to engage the audience in real-time.
As you know, South By Southwest (SXSW) connects companies from promising startups to established industries, leaders, authors, and creatives across industries all over the world from their home in Austin, Texas.
Therefore, Live Chat will be an important part of SXSW by enabling participants to:
- Exchange ideas and comments during keynote presentations
- Submit questions to panelists using the Q&A native Live Chat feature
- Express emotions with GIFs and Emojis
- Participate in Polls that are part of the program
Arena is an Online Exhibitor at SXSW 2022.
How Arena Enhances Virtual Events
Arena’s software is trusted by thousands of companies to improve their virtual events. Consider adding one of Arena’s tools to enhance your own virtual event.
Live chat is a tool that lets attendees respond to polls, ask questions, and interact with your brand and other attendees during virtual events. By adding Arena Live Chat, brands can seamlessly integrate live chat capabilities in their virtual events. This feature lets online attendees provide feedback and share ideas virtually instead of needing to be physically present at the event.
Live blogs let virtual event organizers share quick updates like images, text, video, live scores, maps, and more as an event unfolds. Live blogs can provide important event updates, share ideas, present interviews, and keep attendees informed about speakers. Organizers can use Arena Live Blog to quickly improve their virtual event experience.
Arena Customer Data Platform (CDP) can be integrated with Arena Live Chat and Live Blog to help understand customer behavior and interests. Companies are finding it harder to understand their customers because of the heightened restrictions from cookies and data privacy. Arena’s CDP can solve this problem by building customer profiles and collecting data from different touchpoints.
SXSW 2022 and Arena
SXSW 2022 will gather some of the most important tech players and contemporary trendsetters on the planet from March 11-20 in Austin, Texas, and also via live streaming. Arena will be doubly there: with Arena Live Chat to connect and engage the audience in real-time, and as an Online Exhibitor.
