4 ways SXSW is like Davos (and one way it's not)

4 ways SXSW is like Davos (and one way it's not) | SXSW News | Scoop.it

 

One of the favorite topic of SXSW is SXSW itself... : 

 

"What? They have sessions?

Many Davos participants rarely, if ever, attend even one [of the sessions].

 

The eternal search for the new hotness

Another admonition: no matter how much you do, you will always have the sense that something else, something better is going on elsewhere.

 

You go because everyone else goes

Davos is, fundamentally, an exercise in corporate speed-dating.

 

It’s just like high school!

There are as many Davoses as there are perceptions of Davos. Schwab might use the term “stakeholders”

 

 

What do you think? Does it seem accurate? Many people claim that SXSW "has changed" and it is now a business conference. I am not sure I will describe Davos in the same way.
