Acquia Brings Record Expense Account to Austin for SXSW

Seeks to Share Wealth, Pay Bar Tabs of Attendees Interested in Building Amazing Digital Experiences

BURLINGTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- Acquia, where great digital experiences begin, today announced that it is going to make it rain in Austin, Texas. Acquia is seeking to meet up with digital agencies, digital marketers, web developers and anyone else who is interested in talking about digital disruption.

Acquia is rollin' deep, bringing more than a dozen people to SXSW, including Dries Buytaert, Acquia's co-founder and project lead for Drupal, and Tom Erickson, Acquia's CEO. Tom and Dries will host a SXSW core conversation, The Hacker & the Hustler: Coding a Great Company. Acquia's record expense account will be put to good use at SXSW, sponsoring parties with the ballers at Dyn, buying drinks, hitting up food trucks, and splurging on pedi-cabs.

"Acquia is bringing its full swagger to SXSW," said Tom Wentworth, Acquia's CMO. "And we've got cash money to spend. You won't be drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon while you are hanging with the Acquia team, unless you're a hipster, and that's what you drink. Whether it's in the halls of the ACC, the back patio at the Gingerman, or tucking into a Notorious P.I.G. at Frank at 1 a.m., we're looking to meet people who want to build great digital experiences."

One audience Acquia will focus on at SXSW is digital agencies. Whether you work for a global digital agency or SI -- like WPP, SapientNitro, or Accenture Digital -- or a Drupal shop -- like Four Kitchens, Volacci or Alley Interactive -- Acquia's VP of Channels Joe Wykes will be there to show you a good time.

"We'll be rolling down 6th Street, drinking in pubs and dancing in clubs. Who's going to join us in living the good life? We'll also be the ones providing the bottomless Red Bull vodkas to get you through the week," Wykes said.
