SXSW 2017: Be Here March 15–16
Purchase your registration for SXSW 2017 before the end of the day on Friday, November 18 to save an impressive $300 on the walkup price. And, before you finalize your travel plans to Austin, consider tweaking your arrival or departure timeline such that you are in town on both Wednesday, March 15 and Thursday, March 16.
Four reasons these dates may be more appealing to you:
- For 2017, several SXSW Interactive conference tracks extend into March 15–16, including “Brands & Marketing,” “Intelligent Future” and “Journalism.” To get more context on which tracks occur on what days, visit the schedule page.
- The new badge structure for the 2017 event means that your Interactive badge will allow you to attend SXSW Music showcase on the evenings of March 15–16. Watch this short video to better understand how the new 2017 badge structure works.
- Being at SXSW on March 15–16 will enable you to meet more music industry people who are looking to make valuable tech industry connections. As always, cross-industry networking opportunities are one of the most valuable aspects of March Magic in Austin.
- Finding a downtown hotel room is slightly easier on March 15–16. Many of these downtown hotel rooms also are priced more competitively during the second part of SXSWeek. Click on the hotel availability page for complete details.
