Pardon my excitement at not having to endure the shuttle ride to the far side of the seemingly insurmountable Lady Bird Lake to get to the Gaming Expo.
SXSW has announced that SXSW Gaming has shifting its dates and location! Previously set in the Palmer Events Center on the South side of Lady Bird Lake, it was the opposite of SXSW Interactive both in Place and time. I was always torn between attending Interactive and Gaming sessions and events. BUT NO MORE!
SXSW Gaming will now take place in the Austin Convention Center March 17-19, after SXSW Interactive! No longer will you be forced to choose sides! it is a TOTAL win-win for everyone attending SXSW 2016!
Here is SXSW’s announcement:
NEW DATES AND LOCATION FOR 2016 SXSW GAMING
For 2016, Gaming sessions and events will take place in the heart of SXSW activities at the Austin Convention Center. In terms of timeframe, these Gaming sessions also move to later duringSXSWeek® (March 17-19), thereby strongly emphasizing the strong crossover between the gaming, film and music communities. This programming occurs at the same time as the SXSW Gaming Expo, which also moves to the Austin Convention Center.
