All ideas received during the PanelPicker® entry period were posted online for community voting from November 10-20, 2020. The SXSW community was able to review, comment, and vote to help shape SXSW programming for 2021 SXSW Online, a digital event experience from March 16-20, 2021.
Community votes comprise 30% of the final decision plus input of the SXSW Staff (30%) and Advisory Board (40%). Together these percentages helped to determine the final content lineup for the 2021 SXSW Online slate of PanelPicker-curated sessions for the Conference.
For 2021, seven Conference themes will underscore the event – A New Urgency; Challenging Tech’s Path Forward; Cultural Resilience in the Arts; The Rebirth of Business; Transforming the Entertainment Landscape; Connection in Disconnection; and An Uncharted Future.
