SXSW and Eventbase have partnered to bring SXSW Registrants an AI chatbot to serve as a concierge to the March event to help you navigate through the SXSW Conference & Festivals with ease. Abby, the SXSW Bot, delivers a casual, fun conversational-style user experience to help Attendees navigate SXSW, find out what’s happening, and get timely answers to FAQs.
