So it begins! It’s that time of year again as people in PR, journalism, tech, entertainment and more, prepare their trips to Austin for SXSW. While there will definitely be a number of journalists attending, we’d love to make your lives easier and let you know which ones will not.
Below is our list of journalists who will not be at SXSW 2017, and make sure to check back as we continually add more to the list leading up to the big week:
