This year’s SXSW 2019 was the most ambitious body of work A-Player Media has undertaken in our 3 year history. We worked exclusively with a local Austin venue to serve as their Executive Producers to put together a 10-days of Official SXSW programming with 4 major clients and one APM-led day festival.
