Chevrolet TexasWe’ve been counting down the days until SXSWi and now that March is here it’s just around the corner.  Many of us have been doing our best to get ready for the conference by scanning through the panel picker, reading up on the latest blogs and making sure we have everything we need to stay charged up in Austin. I know some of us are still desperately trying to find a place to stay as well.

For one final prep in all things interactive, SMC Dallas is bringing Chris Treadaway, Co-Author of Facebook Marketing An Hour a Day, to speak on his work and thoughts around using Facebook to reach consumers. Think of this as your warm-up for the multitude of panels. Come prepared with your questions and comments.

This event will also serve as an opportunity for SXSWi attendees to meetup before making the trek down to Austin. Now anyone and everyone is welcome so don’t let that stop you from coming out to the Lakewood Theatre March 9. As usual we’ll network from 6-7pm and have a post networking event once the speakers are complete. So get registered today!

Sponsored by Chevrolet

Chevrolet, platinum sponsor of SXSW, is sponsoring this month’s SMC Dallas event at the Lakewood Theater in East Dallas. Mark Harland, Chevrolet Regional Marketing Director, will talk about what the car company is doing here in Texas. We might also have a surprise guest. But more on that later.

In keeping with the theme of prepping for SXSWi, Chevrolet plans to have two all-new Chevrolet Volts available for SMC attendees to test drive in between speakers and mingling. If you don’t get a chance to drive one of them, Chevrolet will have a fleet to test drive in Austin.
