Tomorrow marks the kick-off of an event so large it has to span over a week to get in all of its greatness. I’m talking about South by Southwest, or SXSW, which is taking place in Austin, TX from March 7th – 16th. Pre-registration is over, but you can still pick up a badge and head out to all the festivities. It will be at a higher rate than normal, but the opportunity is still there.
SXSW is broken up into three main categories: film, music, and interactive. Each section has its own set events, special guests, and more. Gamers will find the interactive section more to their liking, as it includes not only video games but tabletop games as well. Many of our favorite well-known companies will be heading out to the convention, and this will give attendees prime opportunity to meet and greet with some of the great designers in the gaming community.
There will be parties, panels, and much more to keep attendees entertained. An exclusive trade show will be held at the convention, allowing attendees to pick up some great swag while at the event. Each attendee will get a special registrant bag for attending that will include a lot of sweet nerdy stuff packed within. The badge rates are a little higher than other conventions, so it’ll definitely take some planning to make the event. If you’re looking to find out what’s the hottest in music, film, gaming, and more, check out SXSW this weekend. For more information, head over to the official SXSW site.
