Help Us Get to Austin

Vote for Trulia in the SXSW PanelPicker 2018

Every day at Trulia, we’re testing the limits of what we can do – from our coding practices and implementation of AI to our marketing and communications efforts – and talking about it with the world. In fact, once again, many of Trulia’s leaders teamed up with other industry titans to submit speaking proposals for the 2018 South by Southwest (SXSW) Conference in Austin, Texas, and we need your help. A major factor in landing a speaking role is determined by public voting. Which means, we need your votes!

From the future of cities to computer vision and code modernization, we’re covering it all. Check out our proposed talks and help us bring these discussions to life by voting for one or all of them:

How Data-Driven Brands Build Strong Relationships
