DEPT® continues to expand its presence in Australia and is bringing together its teams under one brand, to deliver pioneering digital experiences for clients and support them across the full digital customer journey.

From today, award-winning digital product studio Two Bulls/DEPT® and digital marketing team FEED/DEPT® are joining forces to bring its disruptive, forward-thinking solutions to new and existing clients, which include eBay, Ancestry, Twitch, Beyond Blue, Service Victoria, and Meta.

To celebrate this milestone, DEPT® Australia has partnered with the inaugural SXSW Sydney to launch a three day action packed activation – DEPT® Garden House – which will spotlight daily talks and panel discussions from influential industry experts. 

Featuring speakers from the likes of Canva, Kayo Sports and B Lab, the activation will be held in the lush surroundings of The Chinese Garden of Friendship between 18th to 20th October, with the programme lineup touching upon topical industry discussions ranging from Pioneering Meaningful Social Impact to Building Cultural Credibility Through Content. 

SXSW attendees will be able to access DEPT® Garden House by signing up for a wristband. Get yours here: DEPT® x SXSW Sydney 2023.

Eva Kane, Head of Marketing APAC, said: “We are very excited to partner with SXSW Sydney to launch DEPT® Garden House, a vibrant space for industry friends to connect and learn. SXSW is without a doubt the most anticipated event of the year and our partnership is also a way of celebrating not only the successes of DEPT® Australia but also the wider industry.”

SXSW Sydney is a collaboration with TEG, The NSW Government & Destination NSW, and will be the official annual Asia Pacific installment of SXSW, which has taken place every March since 1987 in Austin, Texas. Gathering the world’s most inspired thinkers and creatives, SXSW Sydney will be an exploration of the best in Music, Screen, Gaming, Technology, and Innovation. It will take place between October 15-22.
