The South by Southwest Conference has announced that they will be hosting a seven day event in Sydney, Australia. This new location is an expansion from its usual location in Austin, Texas.
"We couldn't be more excited and honored to work with TEG and the New South Wales Government via Destination NSW on an event that brings to Australia the professional opportunities and unexpected discoveries that make SXSW unique. The purpose of SXSW is to help creative people achieve their goals, and Sydney is the ideal city to serve as a home for the cross-collaboration that exists within the many industries we bring together," said SXSW co-founder and CEO Roland Swenson.
The event, which will be a seven-day celebration of technology, film, and music, will take place from Oct. 15 to Oct. 22 in 2023.
Geoff Jones, group CEO of TEG, added that "SXSW is an event without equal internationally that has launched the careers of so many creative professionals. Through showcasing the creator industries of the Asia Pacific to the world, SXSW Sydney will establish a new SXSW touchpoint, enabling the international and cross-sector connections that deliver the most innovative products and content."
SXSW Sydney will take place in conjunction with event producer TEG, the New South Wales government, and Destination NSW.
