1. Oreo – Grab & Go


The most interesting set up comes from Oreo, a first time SXSW sponsor. Not only do they entice people to grab some oreos, they engage the crowd with their interactive screens and game play. When playing, a person has their photo taken and it is super-imposed with an environment in Austin. They need to guess where they are for a chance to win a gift card to that place. But even if you don’t guess correctly, Oreo doesn’t let you walk away empty handed – with Oreos and Wireless phone chargers.
