Last week, SXSW announced that President Barack Obama will be a Keynote Speaker. This event will take place on Friday, March 11 at 2:30pm at Dell Hall at The Long Center.
President Obama will be interviewed by Evan Smith of The Texas Tribune and the public will have the opportunity to be part of the conversation by sending in questions to the Tribune.
SXSW will conduct a ticket drawing starting at 10:00am CT today to determine which SXSW badgeholders will be admitted to this event. Interactive, Gold and Platinum Badgeholders will be eligible. No other credentials are eligible to enter the drawing. Deadline to enter is 8pm CT on Thursday, March 10. Randomly drawn winners will be notified the night of Thursday, March 10.
If you don't win or can't make it, this will be live-streamed on sxsw.com/live and simulcast throughout our Conference venues including Ballrooms D and EFG, and Room 18ABCD at the Austin Convention Center.
