Use the PanelPicker to secure a speaking slot at SXSW Interactive or SXSW V2V

Delivering a solo presentation or speaking on a panel at the SXSW Interactive Festival showcases your creative genius to cutting-edge thinkers and early adopters from across the United States and around the world. So, how do you secure a spot on the 2015 agenda?

The answer here is simple and easy: Enter your idea in the SXSW PanelPicker, which is our online interface for collecting (and cataloguing) the best speaking concepts from the community. Entry period for the 2015 SXSW PanelPicker is July 2014 — stay tuned to this space for exact details.

If you can’t wait until next spring to deliver your amazing idea to cutting edge digital creatives, then apply for a speaking slot at the second annual SXSW V2V in Las Vegas. The SXSW V2V PanelPicker will accept speaking proposals through 11:59 pm CDT on Friday, April 11.

Dates for SXSW V2V in Las Vegas are Sunday, July 13 through Wednesday July 16. Dates for SXSW Interactive 2015 in Austin are Friday, March 13 through Tuesday, March 17. The registration process for SXSW 2015 will commence in early August 2014.
