SXSW (South by Southwest) is coming to Sydney, Australia for the very first time this year! A fan-favourite event for industry professionals, the hybrid conference/festival combines tech, science, music, film, and culture in one massive week from 15-22 October.
And Mo Works will be exhibiting at the Expo from October 18-21!
With a theme of “Building the Agency of the Future for a Connected World” we aim to showcase how our full-service agency takes businesses from strategy to success by generating and increasing profitability through sustainable practices.
Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect at the event.
Mo Works x SXSW
The SXSW conference is dedicated to helping creative people achieve their goals. It’s the perfect place for creators, thinkers and innovators to come together across a range of interconnected industries to learn from each other and form great connections.
Our goal, by attending the event, is to open up conversations about the benefits of tech, AI and B2B in marketing, and how Mo Works is making moves towards becoming the Agency of the Future through a focus on integrated services, diversity and inclusion, and accelerating sustainability for businesses.
SXSW Sydney is where you’ll get the chance to see and interact with experiences and organisations like Advertising by Uber’s bar in a car, a military truck turned fully renovated cocktail bar on wheels; Accenture’s Robotics meetup for professionals with an interest in robotics and AI; CSIRO and Main Sequence working to accelerate humanity towards a better future through Track 2050; and Mo Works as we harness the power of marketing and design to drive futuristic solutions.
And it all happens over just one week.
But that’s not all. There are a massive number of incredible people and organisations involved in SXSW, and though you may not be able to make it to see every single one of them, we’ve got a few we’re keeping an eye on.
Australian Agritech Association, the peak national body for agritech in Australia will be attending. Their mission is to connect, promote and advance the Agritech sector in Australia.

Dr Adam Makarucha, IBM Client Engineering Senior Leader, is an AI engineer who realises the incredible potential and importance of machine learning and how we can embrace letting machines take over (in certain areas). Advances in tech are often intimidating, and for good reason, with every change we have more to learn, but AI has proven an incredible tool for creators and thinkers alike, and can be a fantastic tool for enhancing B2B marketing.
