I may be biased — but, to me, SXSW Interactive isn't just about attending a series of great panels and presentations. It's all about face-to-face meetings and the career-enhancing connections that ensue. One of my favorite things about SXSW Interactive is that you never know who you're standing next to or what new venture they're dabbling in. Needless to say, I love putting my phone down and striking up a conversation with the stranger next to me.
Not only can you network like this every March in Austin, but you can make connections before the event in a city near you! SXSW Interactive is hitting the road in January and February to host a series of pre-event Community Meet Ups where you can chat with other excited SXSW Interactive attendees, past or present, and mingle about all things SXSW -- all while having a drink on us! Have a question about SXSW Interactive or thinking about attending? You are welcome come talk with our staff who will be attending these meet ups as well!
The dates and locations for these Community Meet Ups are listed below. These Community Meet Ups are usually held after work hours. As the dates get closer, we will post more information on this website about these Community Meet Ups, including details on the hosting venue and how to RSVP. But, for now, take a look at the list and mark your calendars! We'll see you soon!
