SXSW PanelPicker Entry Deadline is July 22

The Forrest Four-Cast: July 16, 2018

If you want to enter a speaking proposal for SXSW 2019, then know that your window of opportunity is closing very quickly. The deadline for getting your proposal into the PanelPicker is the end of day on Friday, July 20.

Leading a solo presentation or speaking on a panel at SXSW is a great way to showcase your experience, insights, enthusiasm and passion to the forward-thinking community that gathers in Austin each March.

Additionally, all speakers receive a comp / free Platinum badge. This badge allows speakers to attend other sessions during the event, as well as network with the thousands of other thought-leaders who come to SXSW.

If you live in Austin, then learn more about the PanelPicker process at the all-day AMA on Tuesday, July 17 at Capital Factory.
