What is “South By”?
SXSW – held every March in Austin Texas – is an event so badass it makes Chuck Norris look like Derek Zoolander. So it makes perfect sense that the world’s most badass tech event – The Tech Off® – is there too.
Austin has the strapline Keep Austin Weird. And we’re taking this literally. We’ll be BBQ’ing their brains and branding tech into their behinds (not literally).
And we’ll have the full crew in full effect; The Tech Off CEO MC Danimal AKA The Beyonce Of Tech; our security The Fabulous Bakewell Boys; and DJ Beefcake (fresh from his gig at the presidential inauguration).
What is The Tech Off?
The Tech Off® has been called “the lovechild of TED talks and WWE wrestling” and we’ve been laying down truths since summer 2014.
We invite a smorgasbord of tech types to speak for ONLY 5 MINUTES about anything to do with tech. And we MEAN 5 minutes. You go past the bell, and the Boys are coming for you (seriously, we regularly boot speakers off).
Winners are chosen by the crowd, hungry for blood, tears AND TECH! Using our unique ‘connected device’ app The Techometer™ we scientifically choose the winner. They then take away The Tech Off Winner’s Belt Of Digital Glory…and a lifetime of memories they can never forget (no matter how hard they try).
It’s an IMAGINOCALYPSE!
We’ll be making a special custom belt for the winner of our “Imaginocalypse!”
We’re asking all our speakers to imagine just which of today’s technologies will crumble and die over the next few years, and which will soar and wow the world in the future??
Find out only at The Tech Off: Imaginocalypse!
MC’ing this meat-tray of talent is MC Danimal AKA The Beyonce Of Tech. He has recently joined Twitter but we advise against tweeting him. He’s extremely volatile and suggestible.
