Gearing up for SXSWi with Gigya Grill





It’s hard to find something we love more than a huge gathering of industry leaders with some complimentary food and drink thrown into the mix. As we gear up for SXSW this year, we’re bringing Gigya Grill back for a full three days of networking, free food and drink, panel discussions, live DJ, casino games, prizes, and more. If you’re wondering how we pack in the fun while also providing valuable takeaways for our guests, check out our SXSW recap from last year.

This year’s Gigya Grill will run from Friday, March 7, through Sunday, March 9, at El Sol y La Luna Restaurant. Full meals and drinks will be served all day, followed by panel discussions and happy hour set to the tunes of DJ Manny.

Attendees can drop by anytime at their convenience. And of course, all food and drink are on us.

To help you better plan your SXSW/Gigya Grill experience, we’ve provided some details below.


Following the success of last year’s panel, we’re bringing together leaders from Showtime, Caesars Entertainment, VentureBeat, Marketing Land, and more for two panel discussions on Saturday, March 7, and Sunday, March 9, from 4:00 to 6:00 PM. Cocktail hour will follow each panel. Details for each panel are below, along with links to register.

Saturday’s panel, Predictions Shaping the Future of Customer Experience, discusses the evolution of the customer experience in a world of seemingly unending touch points and devices.
