SXSW Eco Events
From dining in an organic farm's pecan grove to watching the sunset exodus of the world's largest urban bat colony, last year’s special events were wide-ranging and well-received. This year we are planning more excursions that will provide an unforgettable chance to meet fellow attendees during an experience that is wholly unique to Austin and SXSW Eco.
SXSW Eco Bookstore Signings
The Eco Bookstore (located at the Austin Convention Center) features a selection of current books and hosts daily signings by today's most relevant authors, designers and thought-provoking leaders. Speakers from the past year include Phillipe Cousteau Jr., Annie Leonard, Tamar Adler and Michael Moore. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to meet and greet this year’s speakers!
Make friends and discuss the first day's exciting events at the SXSW Eco welcome reception. Join us at the close of programming on Monday, October 7 to enjoy refreshments while furthering the conversation with your fellow attendees.
Get to know your fellow registrants over organic food and organic conversation at the Eco Welcome Dinner. This enriching experience is quickly becoming a staple for many Eco attendees. Come see why–purchase your ticket when you register.
SXSW Eco Awards Ceremony
SXSW Eco is pleased to introduce a new addition to our 2013 program: The SXSW Eco Awards. In 2012 we hosted an awards ceremony to announce the winners of our Startup Showcase; in 2013 we are expanding this event to honor a diverse range of visionaries who are enacting positive change in their respective fields. Stay tuned for exciting developments as our season progresses.
SXSW is renowned for throwing great parties, and SXSW Eco keeps that tradition alive! Join us for the SXSW Eco Closing Party right after panels end on Wednesday October 9th. Enjoy live music, a great atmosphere, and recap events with new friends and colleagues.
