SXSW 2017: Buy Now and Save Big

The Forrest Four-Cast: November 11, 2016

Purchasing a badge gives you access to hundreds of compelling panels and solo presentations (see the full schedule here). It also lets you see keynotes such as Lee Daniels, Jennifer Doudna, Gareth Edwards, and Adam Grant, plus Featured Speakers like Dr Robert Cialdini, Kate Crawford, Magic Johnson, and Padmasree Warrior. More top-name speakers for the 2017 event announced early next week!

We have restructured the badge functionality for 2017 such that Interactive registrants can attend significantly more of Music and Film. Likewise with Music and Film registrants. This new badge structure reflects the inter-connectedness of these three industries in the 21st century. Learn more about how the new badge structure will work by viewing this short video.

The new SXSW badge functionality will also greatly enhance one of the best aspects of March Magic in Austin — cross-industry networking. Meeting people whose interests lie outside of your traditional network inevitably opens up many new career opportunities. Moreover, one of the larger lessons from this week is that confining ourselves to isolated echo chambers leads to less-than-positive outcomes. Expand your horizons at SXSW!
