  3. 3. #Protips HOW TO ACT LIKE YOU’VE BEEN THERE BEFORE SCHEDULE LIKE A CHAMP, BUT BE FLEXIBLE. Choose a handful of sessions and parties you don’t want to miss, allowing for travel time between session venues. Sessions will fill up quick. Have a backup plan in place, which includes other sessions taking place at the same time, in the same venue. Build out your schedule by visiting and/or download the SXSW® GO app. ARRIVE EARLY TO POPULAR PANELS & KEYNOTES. Keynotes and panels with big-name speakers will be the hardest for you to secure a seat in. Arrive 30 minutes to an hour early. Get there at the last minute and you might have to resort to catching the action on a TV monitor in the hallway. MAKE FRIENDS ON SXSOCIAL. Chances are you’ll know a person or two in Austin. And by the time you leave, you’ll make a dozen new friends and acquaintances. Search for and message other conference attendees/speakers during the conference with SXsocial. PREPARE FOR MOTHER NATURE. Austin in March is known for its multiple weather personalities, so you’ll want to monitor the forecast closely. Pack an umbrella or poncho and sunscreen, and you’ll be ready for anything. POWER IS NO LAUGHING MATTER. Portable chargers will be your (best) friends. Remember, you’ll be on-the-go most of the day with limited access to charging stations and outlets. Pack a charger (or two) with you for the day, and you won’t be spending your time searching for juice. GET ON THE LIST. While the days will be long, you’ll be disappointed if you leave Austin without attending a party or two. Check out what the night scene will have to offer before touching down. Want someone else to do this for you? Check out registration service, RSVPster, which will RSVP you to 100’s of parties during the festival. IT’S A MARATHON, NOT A SPRINT. With so many sessions to attend and parties to be seen at, you’ll have the urge to hit the ground running and cram, cram, cram. Pace yourself. Allow for breaks during the day to ensure you have the energy to attend that evening event you highlighted and starred five times on your list. Deep South Sustenance NOSHING & NETWORKING LIKE A BOSS You’ve touched down in Austin. Take a look with your stomach, not your eyes. The bars, cafes and food trucks that line the streets of Austin offer up some of the most diverse, delicious cuisine in the country and should not be taken lightly. They also serve as the perfect place to relax, network and catch up with old and new friends and colleagues alike.
