SXSW Interactive is a well known conference that takes place in Austin, TX and is part of the larger SXSW conference that also includes music and film. Austin is a vibrant place to visit on it’s own, with lots of startup and a fun atmosphere with lively music venues. SXSW Interactive is great for anyone who wants to learn about what is new or coming up in technology and digital, covering a wide variety of topics from websites to video games to startups. Part of SXSW Interactive is the SXSW Gaming Expo, where you can learn all about the latest games and gaming technology. There is also the annual SXSW accelerator competition where your startup can compete for funding. With all that and more, SXSW is one of the places you need to be this year, to see what is going to be on the cutting edge in 2016.
“Interactive Session Formats
Featured Speakers are a series of hour-long presentations that see some of the most recognizable and well respected thought leaders take the stage. These sessions are held in our largest programming rooms and span across all of our themes.
These hour-long, internally curated Keynote presentations showcase the trends and ideas that we believe to be the most important or significant within the new media industries. The Interactive Festival hosts one Keynote per day of programming.
Mentor Sessions aim to pair relatively newcomers in the field of technology with an experienced new media professional for seven minutes of intense, one-on-one career coaching. Our mentors range in areas of expertise and make themselves available for an hour’s time. Advance sign up required.
Solo, Dual and Panel Presentations
The vast majority of our Solo, Dual and Panel programming is sourced through the PanelPicker®. Panels typically feature one moderator and up to three additional industry experts who represent different perspectives and opinions. Solo and Dual presentations offer less diversity of opinion but more in-depth analysis. Each of these formats are one hour in length.
Our in-depth, instructional Workshop program offers advanced level technical information that revolves around a particular topic or skill. Workshops enable SXSW registrants to gain more expertise in their particular area of interest and vary from two, four or eight hours, depending on the topic at hand.
Advance sign up is required. If you’re interested in receiving a notification when signups become available, please fill out this form.
