SXSW Hair of the Dog | BIMA ThirstDay Special

Get the best out of Austin Texas right here in London with our SXSW Hair of the Dog.

This March we have partnered with DigitasLBi to bring you BIMA ThirstDay with a twist of SXSW.

Join us and a great panel of speakers, as we dive into the key trends to come out of the festival and relive some of the best talks, pecha kucha-style. Our SXSW Hair of the Dog wouldn’t be complete without an alcoholic beverage or two, so following the talks we will dive straight into our famous BIMA ThirstDay drinks.

Speakers include:

Gareth Jones, Chief Brand & Content Officer, DigitasLBi (Host) 
Gareth James, Chief Creative Officer, TMW Unlimited 
Adam Graham, BIMA Chairman and Managing Partner at
Howard Kingston, Co-Founder and CMO, Adludio
Tamara Sword, Founding Director, TRM&C 
Pete Trainor, Director of Human Centred Design, Nexus CX
Amanda Neylon, Head of Digital, Macmillan Cancer Support 
Lynn Lester, Events Director, The Drum 

Event Timings:
18:15 – Doors Open
18:45 – SXSW Talks Start
20:00 – Talks end
20:00 til late – BIMA ThirstDay

As ever, BIMA ThirstDay meet ups aim to foster engaging conversations across the digital spectrum – bringing together agency CEOs and brands with industry newbies and everyone in between.

If you work in digital, we’d love you to join us at this SXSW Hair of The Dog

We promise:

  • A laid back social environment with an informative SXSW discussion

  • Gently facilitated by BIMA. Nothing in-your-face, but we can help with introductions and follow-up 

  • Free drinks while the tab lasts. Drinks kindly provided by the good people at DigitasLBi.
