SXSW Interactive is a conference bringing tech and creative folks from around the world together in Austin, TX for a few amazing days. Attendees can check out sessions geared at a variety of subtopics in the world of tech business and beyond, while hitting up networking events and parties along the way. This year, it runs Friday March 11 – Tuesday March 15.

Killer attended SXSW Interactive for the first time last year, with a focus on learning and attending as many sessions as we could fit in a day. We met a lot of amazing people, networked at parties, and made some great connections. We also worked directly with SXSW in 2015 to produce infographics, a survival guide, and a map for their attendee guide.

This year, with even more Killer representatives in attendance, we’re ready to do all of that again and so much more. Check out one of our designs below! More of our work can be found in the SXSW Interactive Program Guide: check out several vignettes of the types of attendees you might find at SXSW sprinkled throughout the Festival Sessions section, and on the last few pages of the guide you’ll find a #SXsnaps scenic guide to Austin.

Looking at the schedule there are dozens of events going on at any one time, making it tricky to pick just one place to be. In between your sessions and your company’s own events, here are a few places you can find us!

The SXSW Trade Show (Sun. March 13 – Wed. March 16, 10:00AM – 6:00PM daily except for March 16 from 10:00AM – 2:00PM) is located in the Austin Convention Center, 531 E. 4th St., Exhibit Halls 2, 3, and 4. Killer Infographics has a booth this year for the first time — we’re Booth 512, just inside the Trinity Street Entrance. That puts us conveniently not all that far from the bar, if you’re into that sort of thing! Come see us and chat about the past, present, and future of visual communication. We’ll be showcasing a wide range of work from our portfolio, including motion graphics, infographics, interactive infographics, and posters. The posters you see (and more) may be purchased from The Killer Foundry, our online store.

Exhibitor Pitches: Data Visualization (Sun. March 13, 2:00PM – 3:00PM) features speakers from companies that deal in data visualization. Our co-founder Amy Balliett will speak in the second time slot for this event. Check it out at the Austin Convention Center, 531 E. 4th St., Exhibit Hall 2 – Pitch Stage.

Aside from those Killer-centric events, here are just a few of the many other sessions and installations we’re excited about:

Of course, we’ll be taking advantage of a variety of networking events and parties as well. We’ll see you there!
