SXSW Interactive – the 10 big ideas you need to know about

Retail innovation was seriously discussed at this year’s SXSW Interactive festival. Whether over drinks, at salon lunches or in line for some of the busiest sessions dedicated to that theme, everything related to this space was hotly debated, and not just by fashion people.

We covered the topic day-to-day last week with stories ranging from tips for start-ups from venture capitalists, to the launch of Diesel’s new Instagram artist campaign and the latest update on virtual reality from Oculus.

Now we’ve summarised the big takeaways from the week in a comprehensive report that covers:

  • The live-streaming debacle
  • The robots are coming
  • Wearables everywhere
  • From walled gardens to open ecosystems
  • Reframing privacy
  • Female entrepreneurship
  • The future for VR meeting AR
  • Cross-discipline collaboration
  • Fashion as the big subject
  • Shipping needs disruption
