Final Weekend for Speaking Proposals!
Innovators from around the world have just a few more hours to finish speaking proposals for SXSW 2020, as the entry portion of the PanelPicker interface closes at 11:59 pm Pacific Time on Sunday, July 21.
Successful SXSW speaking proposals include many different elements. But perhaps the most important element is massive creativity, which is the rocket fuel that powers so much of what makes March in Austin so magical.
After the PanelPicker entry interface closes on Sunday night, the next big phase of this process is public voting (and commenting) on all entered ideas. Voting begins on Monday, August 5 and closes on Friday, August 23.
Also remember that badge sales for SXSW 2020 begin on Thursday, August 1. Register early for the lowest prices and for the best options on downtown lodging. Special discounts for groups and for students!
