SXSW offers many different areas for young professionals to further develop their careers. It’s never too early to start strategizing your business goals to ensure you’re making the most of your time at the event.Below is our Top 5 Business Goals for Young Professionals Get ready for the 2023 SX season.
1. Go with a group
Attending SXSW with a group of friends or colleagues means you can cover more ground, hear more than one point of view, and feel more at home within the context of the larger event.
Bring your team of 10 or more to SXSW And save big. Once your group has registered, book hotel accommodation through SXSW Housing & Travel or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a hotel room until names are confirmed.
Pro tip: Booking through SXSW Housing & Travel gives registrants access to the lowest rates in Austin during SXSW. Plus, the earlier you book your travel arrangements, the more you save.
2. Make a plan
You don’t want to be caught at the last minute when events are only days away and you haven’t even started picking which panels, meetings and networking events you want to attend.Browse the official SXSW schedule and download the SXSW GO app to Create your own personalized schedule in advance. Your personal schedule will be automatically updated if details of event times and locations are available.
