SXSW Gaming brings together the gaming industry into one chaotically fun experience that only the legendary SXSW can provide. It’s a unique combination of all things geek, nerd, and gaming that takes place in an environment where creativity thrives.
Unlike similar gaming conventions and festivals, SXSW Gaming is positioned at the nexus of the converging Interactive, Film and Music Festivals that are found exclusively at SXSW. With the SXSW Gaming Awards, daytime sessions, a bustling gaming expo, rocking parties and exceptional demos, no event bridges the gap between industry insiders and fans quite like SXSW Gaming.
