Which regional offices are currently hosting the 2017 SXSW conference?
Posted On July 13, 2021
I’ve never attended SXSW in my life, but I was lucky enough to be in the Austin area for the inaugural conference.
The first few days were spent at the Austin Convention Center for an event that kicked off SXSW Week.
For a few hours, I was treated to a mix of the best and worst things about SXSW, from a great lineup of talks and panels to an awesome live music venue and even a huge art installation by artist Doreen Gage.
As you can see in the gallery above, the conference was a blast.
The Austin Convention & Exhibition Center is home to SXSW and I am not alone in that opinion.
You can also take a look at the full SXSW calendar, which will be out for the conference from April 20-24, 2019.
The Austin area was an easy choice to host SXSW this year, as many of the events were locally focused and many of them were free.
Even though I haven’t had a chance to visit the city yet, I think I have the full rundown of the city’s SXSW venues.
Austin is home of the Austin International Airport and its proximity to the SXSW Conference Center means I had to check in for the first time on Friday and the first day of the conference.
I’ve already said that I was excited to check out Austin and that I have a big heart for the city.
But the best part about SXSXSW is that it’s an event with the potential to change the way people think about the arts.
And while the first few weeks were definitely not my favorite, I still think it’s a great opportunity to make Austin one of the most accessible cities in the country for artists and other creative types.
