Get Down with Your 21st-Century Self at Dig South

Get Down with Your 21st-Century Self at Dig South

You may still be recovering from the pang your heart felt when SXSW wrapped last month, but it’s time for you to set that beat back in motion because Dig South is only 11 days away. In its short three years, Dig South has become the Southeast’s proverbial melting pot for digital and tech trailblazers to inspire, create, and collaborate. Plus, the South’s got a lot to say and Dig South is the perfect platform to snag that mic and sing your battle cry.

If you’re caught in a side-eye wondering if this Interactive Festival is for you, don’t sweat it, Hype’s got your back with the top 5 reasons Dig South is the place to be.

Collide with Collective Minds

Interact with 2,500 attendees and unleash your inner #POWER with folks ready to connect, advise, recruit, or even offer up capital. It’s all about that 21st-century swagger.

This Ain’t No Tired PowerPoint Presentation

Who here loves Power Point Presentations? Yeah, that’s what we thought. Learn from 200 skilled tech tycoons on the good, bad, and the ugly. You’ll get to hear from household brands in the biz like Re/Code, Google Play, and Facebook who are ready to share insider secrets for budding entrepreneurs like you!

Everything From Blues to Booze

The Dig South crew has pulled out all the stops to make this year the best one yet. They’ve put together a playground packed with live music, cocktail-clinking, food truck tastes, motivating meetups, and more – the perfect fit for the seasoned or startup soul.

It’s Located in Charming Charleston

By the time you rolled your luggage through the airport, got through security, waited at the gate and crammed into the plane like a can of sardines for SXSW, you could have already been sipping on a Gin Basil Smash and eye guzzling this gorgeous city.

It’s Kind of a Really Big Deal

Dig South has really caught its stride in its short three years – growing from 450 attendees during the first year, with projections to nearly double compared to last year’s 1,170 attendees. Now onto its fourth festival, Dig South continues to celebrate and cultivate the brightest minds in the business in order to foster more recognition and resources to our southern states.

You should probably go ahead and start packing now. If you haven’t bought your tickets, we’ll just leave this here.
