SXSW has long been a networking hub for creatives and ambitious professionals to collaborate. However, the underlying pulse of the event has always been creative, corporate, and educational inspiration. So now that we know what can happen at SXSW, how exactly can a small business get the most out of this huge event? How can big brands get a fresh perspective? What if I have great ideas, how do I share them with the masses? Think of SXSW Online as your secret weapon, your Swiss Army pocket-sized, all-in-one tool. A means by which participants can educate those logging on while also learning from them – and maybe catch a conversation with Willie Nelson or The Chainsmokers in between.
Fitting the biggest annual event in Austin into the digital world gives you a variety of opportunities to demonstrate and discover on a global scale. But where to start? No worries, we’ve got you covered:
- If your vision for the new year includes a focus on community, get involved with the SXSW Community Service Awards, honoring both individuals and organizations working for others.
- The SXSW Official Events can thrust your message, product launch or inspiring story into the spotlight. Brands that participate will be displayed on the official SXSW Online schedule for all attendees to enjoy.
- Explore or exhibit at the SXSW Creative Industries Exhibition to browse exciting start-ups and well-established companies, chat one-on-one with brand experts, and network all within one space.
- Take advantage of the Professional Development Hub where attendees can find their next careers and brands can benefit from creative and ambitious SXSW applicants.
Whether you’re a large enterprise, startup, non-profit organization or running solo, SXSW is the fastest way to keep up with industry trends, gain exposure, and build your business.
