SXSW Gaming Festival 2018 - Scrub Budz Booth,

Austin, Texas, United States Austin, Texas, United States

  • About the event

    SXSW Gaming saw over 46,000 paid attendees in 2017, and 2018 looks to be even bigger. It's a festival celebrating all things gamer, from console and tabletop games, indie developers, artwork and merchandise, contests, and booths / appearances from major players in the industry.

    Last year, we had a booth there and it was amazing. One of our projects, a Let's Play series on YouTube called "Scrub Budz," was a perfect fit, and we decided to set up shop by creating a 90's living room feel to that booth, inviting gamers of all ages to play their favorite titles from all time periods with us, and recording a few live shows in the process.

    It was our first year doing the project and having a presence there, but our booth quickly became one of the busiest and most talked about at the event. Other booths wanted to know what we were doing and were a bit confounded about how a Let's Play project could garner so much attention away from product and game demos - it's because of our passion. The Scrub Budz booth is just a lot of damn fun!

    Gaming is our lives, and we love to share that passion with everyone else. Whether that be playing a game with them, sharing our embarassingly deep knowledge of the history, our collections of files and related music, and bringing partners together, we put our heart and soul into it.

    We're ready to bring our booth back to SXSW Gaming Festival 2018, and we would love your help in making it better than ever!

    Why should you sponsor?

    Your company or project should sponsor us because we are excellent, professional partners and we will get the word out about you and what you do. If you truly love our goals and mission and want to back us, we would be happy to work with you!

    We are only interested in sponsorships that make sense - in other words, gaming gear and controllers, video game / tabletop game / comic shops, electronics businesses, tech companies, things of that nature. If you think our passions could be shared amongst our shared audiences, let's do it!

    We do, of course, offer perks as well. We will only accept one sponsor this year, so we will work with the first offer to one of these tiers at the highest tier level offered, if our projects make sense to come together.

    Thanks so much for helping us spread the joy of gaming and giving us more opportunities to archive and share everything related to the industry.
