Join Us at the “SXSW 2018: What You Need to Know” After Hours Session

Each year, SXSW brings people together from across the globe for ten days to experience all things interactive, film, music, and so much more. With all of these fun options also comes an overwhelming aspiration to try and see everything the event has to offer. We know it can be a little overwhelming, especially if it's your first time attending SXSW, but have no fear because the SXSW 2018: What You Need to Know after hours session will provide you with all the information and resources you need to make your time here in Austin the best one possible.

This session will cover badge access, venue logistics, speakers, 2018 trends and themes, and more. We’ll kick off the evening with a short presentation from SXSW Staff – including Chief Programming Officer Hugh Forrest, Head of Conference Programming Todd Hansen and Conference Programming Manager Kelly Krause – and conclude with a Q&A. Additional SXSW Staff members will also be available to answer any questions you might have and we are all excited to help you make the most of your SXSW experience!
