GUIDE
SXSWi 2015

"That small, grass-roots event which drew


700 people its inaugural year has since
mushroomed into SXSW, one of the largest
and most influential gatherings on the planet."
USA Today, March 7, 2014

MINDSHARE AT SXSW 2015

SXSWi
30,000+ participants from 83
countries
1,100 sessions with over 2,000
speakers
3,000+ press outlets covering
the festival

MINDSHARE AT SXSW 2015

Making the most of SXSWi


The conference is widespread throughout downtown Austin - be sure to explore
outside of just the Convention Center
Spend time walking around outside of the Convention Center to find the best
branded experiences

The trade show floor is only open Sunday-Tuesday; budget ~2 hours to cover
the full floor
Download the SXSW GO app & use it to program your personal schedule

Be open to spontaneity & be prepared with a plan B (lines can be long)


Big names on panels draw crowds, unknown speakers deliver unique
experiences
There is no Uber surge cap; wear your walking shoes
