About Networking


Whether you’re seeking mentorship, new connections, or friends with shared interests, SXSW EDU provides a road to your goals.

Networking opportunities during the annual event come in a variety of forms, both casual and formal, to empower attendees to accomplish their networking goals.

Several opportunities will be available to support every type of networker, those who thrive in one-on-one settings, and those who enjoy group environments.

Propose a Meet Up

Meet ups are topic-focused, networking events selected through the PanelPicker process, which give communities at SXSW EDU the chance to connect with others who share similar passions or interests. Enter a meet up idea in PanelPicker Tuesday, June 29 – Thursday, July 22.
