Countdown to SXSW Interactive 2010

By Nat Robinson on February 26, 2010

The excitement leading up to SXSW is building, just 14 more sleeps!!!

An incubator of cutting-edge technologies, the SXSW Interactive Festival brings together the world’s most creative and innovative developers, inventors, entrepreneurs and thinkers. As the official online presentation partner of the event, we’ve been thrilled to work with those of you presenting at SXSW to maximize the impact, effectiveness and lifetime value of your presentation. As a SXSW attendee, you’ll see SlideRocket presentations being used in many Interactive sessions and throughout the Accelerator Program, taking place March 15-16 at the Hilton Downtown Austin.

We’re looking forward to meeting all of you and wanted to let you know when and where to find us:

#1 – WIN a 27″ iMAC by Stopping by our booth in Exhibit Hall #4 and entering your business card in the drawing. Our booth is conveniently (strategically?!) located across from the Trade Show bar in Exhibit Hall #4. We’d love an opportunity to meet you, give you a demo and answer any of your questions or help you out with your SXSW presentation.

Where: Austin Convention Center, Level 1, Exhibit Hall 4, across from the bar

All the presenters in the Accelerator Program will be using SlideRocket to present their ideas for the next big thing in the tech business. Come see SlideRocket in the wild and watch how this innovative bunch of presenters puts SlideRocket though it’s paces. We’ll be in attendance ready to apply our presentation know-how so just look for SlideRocket staff in the rocket T-Shirts if you have any questions. 32 companies will battle it out armed with their ideas (and SlideRocket presentations) on March 15th and 12 will be invited back on March 16th for the final showdown when the winners will be announced.

Where: March 15th and 16th at the Hilton Austin Downtown


Apparently there are a few parties at SXSW so we plan to do our due diligence and attend as many as possible, just in case you have questions.

If you’re going to be at SXSW this year and would like to set up a meeting with us in advance please send an email to

See you in Austin!

SlideRocket Powers The Macworld Booth @ Macworld 2009

By Nat Robinson on January 9, 2009

This week the Macworld Conference & Expo came to San Francisco (sans Steve Jobs) and macolytes from all over came to worship. It was one of the bigger Macworld’s we’ve seen with two halls (Moscone North & South) full of vendors selling their Macwares, and a plethora of sessions in Moscone West.

Despite what some attendees thought, SlideRocket didn’t have a booth at Macworld this year but we did power the displays in the Macworld corporate booth.

Using SlideRocket’s new 9:16 format the sales team at Macworld was able to easily author and display an auto-rotating collection of sponsor ads. They even let us plug SlideRocket a bit too! You can watch Macworld’s booth presentation in our presentation gallery.

SlideRocket, now in an expo event booth near you. Just one more way that SlideRocket helps you make great presentations.
