The first-ever Interactive Innovation Awards Finalist Showcase brings the best, most forward-thinking projects from 2015 to your fingertips!

As part of the 19th annual SXSW Interactive Innovation Awards, five finalists from each of the 13 award categories will exhibit and demo their work for all Interactive, Gold, and Platinum badgeholders. Those who attend will have the opportunity to vote for the winner of the People’s Choice Award. The winner will be revealed at the Interactive Innovation Awards ceremony along with the other category winners.

Come discover the 65 finalists that will be part of the Interactive Innovation Awards, with hands-on demos of these trendsetting contributions to the connected world.

Take a look at the video above for a special sneak peek of what to expect at the showcase. The Gadget Fair, featured in this video, was an event earlier this year, open only to entrants and official Interactive Innovation Awards judges. The Finalist Showcase is similar to Gadget Fair, but open to the public.

Get the virtual ballot for the People’s Choice Award the moment you arrive — be sure to have the SXSW GO app on your device to receive the link via beacon notification instantly!
