About the Expo


New for 2019, SXSW EDU is bringing the power of its exhibitions into one Expo that captures the energy and imagination of the future of learning. The dynamic space features a discovery-based learning playground, curated programming, and networking, alongside interactive exhibits showcasing what’s next and new in education.

The Expo will also host a community day when thousands of Central Texas students and educators will have an opportunity to engage.

Monday, March 4: 10:00am-5:00pm
Tuesday, March 5: 10:00am-5:00pm
Wednesday, March 6: 10:00am-5:00pm (Student day – free & open to the public)

The SXSW EDU Expo will feature a number of areas designed to support interaction and learning within the space.


The Playground returns for the seventh year, now as a key component of the broader Expo. The interactive space showcases new strategies to activate students’ learning and features a collaborative stage with Hands On and Talk programming. Qualified organizations can apply for a display to demo their activities through the Playground application.

Next Stage

The Next Stage showcases short-form presentations and conversations around the leading issues in education innovation. From the latest in edtech to market trends and developments throughout the learning lifecycle, the program will showcase emerging voices at the event.
