SXSW 2021 has chosen to host an online event in the face of the ongoing pandemic. Their event platform of choice, Swapcard, will facilitate attendee networking and business connections during the event. In addition to SXSW Online, Swapcard will serve as the virtual platform for SXSW Edu Online.
Following a request for proposal process, SXSW decided on Swapcard, who set about building the event platform. On the menu: interactive live-streamed sessions with world-renowned speakers, musicians and filmmakers, live Q&A and chat features, and abundant networking.
Swapcard values the opportunity to work with a team of organizers that help creatives achieve their goals and that are excited about tackling the challenges this pandemic has forced the industry to face.
Baptiste Boulard, CEO of Swapcard said “Winning the RFP for SXSW Online proves that, over the past 6 months, Swapcard has become the leading platform for large-scale conferences and trade shows in North America. We are thrilled to help SXSW adapt to a new event format and create an immersive experience that we plan on making as good as their live event.”
