AUSTIN, Texas, March 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- While many companies only send a handful of employees to Austin for SxSW Interactive, glispa is proud and excited to bring its entire international team to the conference for this year's annual company retreat. glispans from around the world represent:

  • 40 countries
  • 24 languages
  • 5,000+ miles traveled
  • 180 tickets to SxSW


glispa CEO Gary Lin will also take to the stage on March 14 with the renowned and highly entertaining tech journalist Monty Munford (Forbes, The Telegraph, Mashable and more) for a panel: Never Have I Ever: Why Honesty Is The Best Business Policy. Their discussion will revolve around the important and at times controversial subject of transparency in modern business culture.

"We are a fast-growing international company and would like to use SxSW as an opportunity to bring everyone together," said Gary Lin, Founder & CEO of glispa. "We communicate with each other every day across multiple time zones and digital platforms, but uniting at an iconic festival like this is extremely valuable to our culture and morale. We're excited to take full advantage of everything Austin has to offer — including its famous barbeque."

glispa's company-wide trip to SxSW is an opportunity to connect all its employees from their offices in Germany, Brazil, China, India, Israel and San Francisco. The retreat will not only be a special cultural experience for the majority of glispans who have never been to the U.S., but it will also serve as a networking opportunity, given the high concentration of entrepreneurs and innovators at the festival.

While glispans will attend a variety of strategic meetings, team-building exercises and parties during their retreat to SxSW, there will also be ample time for employees to explore the festival for the latest tech disruptions and discover new sources of inspiration within Austin's vibrant cultural scene. With the combination of structured activities and free time, glispa is staying true to its innovative and cross-cultural roots, which have been the catalysts for much of its growth and success.

glispa will also host a "Berlin Goes Texas" at the German Haus Party organized jointly by glispa and Openers, Berlin Partner, the Berlin Senate Department for Economics, Technology and Research, as well as Factory Berlin.
