About Gaming Programming

 

SXSW is well-known for its cutting-edge discussions and insightful programming across all disciplines at its Conference and Festivals. On a trip to SXSW you will hear previously unknown bands, can catch the midnight release of a blockbuster film, and engage with renown technology experts as they discuss their views of the future. This same innovative spirit also dwells within SXSW Gaming and can be seen throughout the thought-provoking conversations found within the festival’s programming lineup, which consists of session, panel, meet up, and mentor formats that cover every aspect of gaming culture.

And, with dozens of thought-leaders, developers, and personalities from all corners of the gaming industry converging at SXSW Gaming each year, attendees will never have a shortage of things to engage with while participating in the wide variety of programming formats and forward-thinking conversations found at the festival.

SXSW Gaming 2019 takes place in the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas from Friday, March 15 – Sunday, March 17.
