Move Over SXSW: Join Us For The Southern C Summit

March 7, 2013 | By | Comments (3)

There’s a big digital conference getting ready to roll around, and it’s not the one in Austin. Sure, we love SXSW, but what we’re really counting down for is the first Southern C Summit by the Southern Coterie.

Seriously, no slam on SXSW (we do love Austin and all the great things that will come out of the event). But we’re excited by the prospect of participating in a more intimate gathering of digital influencers, all with a distinct Southern voice.

Southern C Summit

The Southern C Summit will be held on Jekyll Island, May 1-3, and will feature more than 20 presenters.

(Full disclosure: several Southern Living editors are on the lineup, and we’re also a  sponsor.) Among our fellow speakers:

  • Chassity Evans, the Charleston blogger behind the lifestyle site Look Linger Love
  • Amy Pastre and Courtney Rowson, designers and co-founders of Stitch Design Co.
  • Amy Flurry, freelance writer, editor and stylist and founder of the Paper-Cut-Project, a company whose clients include Kate Spade, Hermes, and Cartier.

Whitney Long and Cheri Leavy, the women behind The Southern Coterie (or “Southern C” for short), say that they event is for “online influencers, social media junkies, creative entrepreneurs, seasoned and new business owners, marketing and media professionals, and bloggers of many forms, including food, family, fashion, lifestyle” — the list goes on.

But it’s not going to be all work. The ladies of the Southern C have planned some excellent adventures, including two cocktail parties (Wednesday night’s “Cocktails and Conversation” is hosted by Southern Living), a guided trolley tour of the Jekyll Island National Historic Landmark District, a Southern supper, and plenty of time to ride a bike or … take a nap. Yes, we said take a nap at a conference. We told you it’s not like all the others!

We’re hosting a TweetChat about the Summit with The Southern C (@thesouthernc), Friday, March 15 from noon-12:30 (Eastern). Join us with hashtag #tscsummit to learn more about what to expect, ask questions, and connect with presenters!
