Qualifying schools, institutions, and education nonprofits are eligible to buy five (5) registrations and receive a sixth registration to SXSW EDU 2019 for free. The gratis registration must be used by someone within the same organization, and all registrations must be purchased at the current registration rate based on the discount schedule outlined above.

Please contact us in order for our registration team to send more information on how to redeem for the group discount.
