Shindig and General Assembly Rock SXSW Interactive


Three days of live video chat events connect tech audiences from across the web with digital influencers, new startups and tech entrepreneurs

NEW YORK, NY – March 25, 2015 – Shindig, the leading video chat event provider, hosted, for their second year, a successful three-day online event of interactive talks with thought leaders direct from the convention floor of SXSW. This year’s presenting partner General Assembly (GA) helped to assemble a stellar panel of thought leaders, digital influencers and startup entrepreneurs to share their experiences with an online audience in video chat sessions that ran from Sunday, March 15th through Tuesday, March 17th. Featured interview guests included Eric Ries, author of “The Lean Startup”, John Yembrick of NASA, Rameet Chawla of Fueled and Charlene Li of Altimeter Group.

Through Shindig’s video chat event technology, nearly 60 online participants were brought on stage to ask questions ‘face to face’ with individual speakers as well as mingle, network, share and discuss with fellow attendees in their own private video chats.

“Shindig created a pretty awesome live-streaming experience, with the Editor of Entrepreneur effectively DJing an interview between me and the General Assembly fans who could watch the event in an intimate environment while asking their questions. I loved it!’ said Jeremy Gutsche, Founder and CEO of TrendHunter.com.

Video chats throughout the three-day event took place live from Shindig’s video booth on the SXSW tradeshow floor. Following the success of last year’s series conducted in association with The Economist, these session gave participants at home unique insight into SXSW Interactive as well as unprecedented access to thought leaders and digital influencers.
