The SXSW Eco Conference highlights innovative ideas and new ways of addressing critical challenges at both the local and global levels. But inspired Keynotes and Conference Sessions are only the half of it; a wide array of special events outside of our regular programming are designed to keep the conversation going and facilitate networking. Attending our unique events and parties is an essential part of the SXSW Eco experience.

The Place by Design Outdoor Lounge presented by Southwest Airlines, nightly Film Screenings, and our Themed Lunches will be happening all three days of SXSW Eco to provide you with more opportunities to connect with the SXSW Eco community.
