SXSW: Meet Oklahoma in Austin

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 at 3:00:00 pm

Music, film, interactive? What’s the deal with those and why do we care? Well, according to the Inter-American Development Bank, creative industries contribute more than 10 percent to the U.S. GDP, with a higher percentage of young folks in the workforce than elsewhere in the economy. It goes without saying that growing our creative industries and keeping and recruiting the minds that power them are important to Oklahoma’s future. We support these areas, integral to our cultural and economic scene, and work to help grow them. As part of that effort, for the past four years, the Greater OKC Chamber has been partnering with some of our friends to promote Oklahoma’s creative industries and opportunities to excel here to the world at the SXSW conference and trade show in Austin, Texas. This year, under the “Meet Oklahoma” banner,  the Chamber and our partners will occupy a 20x20-foot booth at the SXSW trade show to help get the good word out about all the opportunities available in our great state’s film, music and interactive / tech / startup areas. If you’re going to be in Austin, be sure to come by! Give us a shout on Twitter @meetoklahoma and get more info at http://www.meet-oklahoma.com/.
