Klaxoon US Road Show Culminates in Austin at SXSW with Activation Highlighting the Power of Teamwork

AUSTIN, Texas, March 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Klaxoon Teamwork Across America Tour is arriving in Austin at SXSW with an activation highlighting the Power of Teamwork. The hot pink Klaxoon tractor-trailer will pull into 4th and Congress Streets to create an immersive experience that fuses digital and live teamwork challenges to glean collective intelligence and creativity. The Power of Teamwork Party takes place Friday, March 8, 2019 (10:00 a.m. - midnight) & Saturday, March 9 (10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.) and will include live music, free champagne, prizes and networking with experts on leadership and teamwork from both the business and sports worlds.

The SXSW activation is the culmination of a 16 city, 11 week US road trip where Klaxoon transformed a truck into a mobile workspace and met with thousands of teams across the country to explore the future of work and collaboration. The mobile exhibit showcased a new suite of collaborative apps that enrich creativity, engagement and decision making.

Klaxoon Inc. is a tech start-up focused on making teamwork smarter. The company raised $50 million in funding in 2018 and its apps are used by one million users in companies such as McDonald’s, Johnson & Johnson, Disney, General Electric, Verizon, L’Oréal and more.

An estimated 55 million meetings take place every day in the United States and most of them fail to engage participants or decision making. It is time to bring solutions forward that allow teams and organizations to reap the full benefits of creative collaboration.

The Power of Teamwork Party will feature guest speakers and activations with games and tips inspired by great sports teams, adapted to meet the needs of today’s drastically changing global workplace. The event will have free champagne all day, and live music starting at 6 p.m.
