The Interactive Festival attracts registrants from all around the world that are looking to expand their knowledge, become inspired and cultivate meaningful connections.

Connecting with the exact kinds of people that you want to connect with can sometimes be challenging at SXSW Interactive. To make sure these connections are discovered we offer various Meet Ups that are usually identified by an interest or skill-set.

NEW for 2016: Meet Ups will be open to all badgeholders as part of SXSW Convergence, allowing Interactive attendees to mix and mingle not only with the interactive community, but with music and film industry professionals as well.
