Above and beyond the nearly one hundred Keynotes and Featured Speakers, March Magic in Austin includes more than 1500 panels and presentations in 25 tracks such as “Brands & Marketing,” “Design,” “Entrepreneurship & Startups,” “Future Workplace,” “Health & MedTech,” “Social & Global Impact,” and “Tech Industry & Enterprise.”
