You asked for it, and this year we’re making it happen! The epicenter of business, and the biggest exhibition at SXSW, is getting even bigger — the SXSW Trade Show is expanding by nearly 40% in 2019.
The Trade Show runs March 10-13 and this expansion means new pavilions devoted to trending industries, more creative innovators, and even greater opportunities for returning businesses and organizations as well as those currently thinking about joining us for 2019. In fact, we are still looking for more creative companies and forward-thinking innovators to apply to participate!
In 2018, there were 735 Trade Show spaces from 27 different countries, with over 75,000 people in attendance. The Trade Show saw exhibitors including Kuka Robotics, Experimental Aircraft Association, Institute for Quantum Computing, Briggo, Rise Against Hunger, Indeed, Audio Technica, Lockheed Martin, Mitsubishi Electric Corp., Shure Inc., Taylor Guitars, and countless others. See the full list of 2018 exhibitors here.
