We recommend you register as soon as you make a definite decision to attend. Participants who register early receive discounted registration fees. Registration and Housing open early August, and we recommend you register early in the season.
Registering early also helps you take advantage of lower travel costs such as airfare and car rental. SXSW Housing & Travel offers a powerful search engine to help make booking your flights to SXSW a breeze.
Please keep in mind that registration fees are non-refundable. For details, read our Terms & Conditions carefully before purchasing your registration.
If you're undecided, SXSW offers walk-up registrations at the Austin Convention Center during the event, in Exhibit Hall 5.
