This is EIG’s fourth year providing surveillance and intelligence services for SXSW. We are always excited to hang out in Austin for two weeks eating our way around town… G’raj Majal last night! While we are always looking for new music to discover, we are even more excited to see the @midnight taping on Friday and now Uncle Joe is going to hang out with us!
Former vice president Joe Biden is confirmed to speak at SXSW on Sunday, March 12th at 3:30 p.m. at the Austin Convention Center. According to a press release, he’ll “outline his plans for a Biden cancer initiative, calling on attendees at SXSW to join him in taking on the disease.”
“In his remarks, he will reflect on the progress made under his leadership of the White House Cancer Moonshot; call for innovative solutions to tackle the barriers that prevent faster gains in ending cancer as we know it; and describe how he plans to remain in the fight,” a statement adds.
