March is just around the corner, and here at SXSW we’re in full gear for the 2020 Trade Show, running March 15-18.

If you’ve thought about applying to be a part of the 2020 Trade Show, or if you’re still on the fence about it, here are three reasons why you should be there.

It’s the Heart of SXSW Exhibitions

The Trade Show is hands down the epicenter of business at SXSW. In no other place at SXSW will you find this many creative businesses and organizations together in one place. In fact, 2019 brought together more than 275 exhibitors from 25 countries with an incredibly diverse range of businesses from all industries and sectors, including health and medtech, marketing, music and film equipment, robotics, aerospace, mobile apps, 3D printing, and more.

Gain Exposure

Looking to increase brand recognition along with your customer base? In 2019, the Trade Show saw a four-day, internationally diverse attendance of 70,000. With attendees from 106 countries, the SXSW Trade Show is an unparalleled opportunity for small to medium-sized companies to internationalize their business.

Network with Registrants and Other Exhibitors

Whether you’re an established industry leader, or a flourishing startup in search more funding, the Trade Show is the perfect place to make contacts, follow up on leads, and network with talented and creative people.

Swing by the Meet Up Pavilion for some casual networking with other professionals while exploring a range of topics from the Interactive, Film, and Music industries.

Are you a fledgling business looking to showcase your innovations or possibly acquire seed funding from new investors? The Startups Pavilion is the place to be to launch a new product and promote your startup.

We are currently looking for more creative entrepreneurs and forward-thinking innovators to apply to participate. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to stake your spot at one of the most unique, hands-on exhibitions out there!
