Expanded Badge Access for SXSW 2017
New for 2017, SXSW is expanding badge access for all registrants. We’re streamlining the conference into one unified event with 24 tracks of programming and offering more opportunities for networking, learning, and discovery than ever before.
Attendees will still receive primary entry to programming associated with their badge type, but can now enjoy secondary access to most other SXSW events, including Keynotes and Featured Speaker sessions. All SXSW badgeholders also receive complimentary access to SXSW Gaming.
Stay tuned for even more exciting reveals as we near March. For the curiouser and curiouser, sign up for SXSW Event Updates to keep up with all SXSW happenings.
