SXSW Lounges provide havens for Registrants to relax, recharge themselves and their devices, and provide opportunities to meet and network with industry peers while enjoying complimentary food and drinks. Meaningful, career-enhancing, one-on-one connections are a major part of what makes attending SXSW so valuable.
Each South By® lounge offers unique experiences including relaxing work spots, impromptu meeting areas, networking hubs, photo ops, and more.
Open throughout the Conference and Festivals, the Registrant Lounge located at 99 Trinity St is a convenient and relaxing meeting point for SXSW attendees. Stop by each day for complimentary drinks, food and swag from our sponsors, and to catch a show at the International Day Stage from March 15-18.
