SXSW Interactive 2013 Data Nuggets

We’re cleaning up the SXSW Interactive 2013 data for analysis. Here are a few interesting nuggets for now:

  • 733 programming events at SXSW Interactive 2013 (includes all themes, categories, and levels)
  • 566 programmed events are based on proposals, or 77% of SXSW Interactive 2013 is proposal based
  • Of the 3,256 proposals submitted, 17% were accepted for programming.

What we’re likely to achieve with the upcoming data analysis:

  • pull forward trends in proposals to see what folks proposed upon (create segmentation if we can)
  • pull forward trends in programming to see what we’re getting in 2013
  • cross proposal trends with programming trends to see if we’re missing anything based on (a) proposal segmentation (b) professional know-how
  • create ‘the perfect winning proposal’ for SXSW Interactive 2013 based on analysis of words/phrases proposed and words/phrases that were selected
  • ‘Dialogue’ the analyst and share here
