South by Southwest (SXSW) dedicates itself to helping creative people achieve their goals. Founded in 1987 in Austin, Texas, SXSW is best known for its conference and festivals that celebrate the convergence of the interactive, film, and music industries. The SXSW Conference provides an opportunity for global professionals at every level to participate, learn, and network. Featuring a variety of tracks that allow attendees to explore what’s next in the worlds of entertainment, culture, and technology, SXSW proves that the most unexpected discoveries happen when diverse topics and people come together.

During SXSW 2016, the Philly tech scene got exposure on a national platform thanks to an effort called Amplify Philly, which brought startups, nonprofits and entrepreneurs from the Greater Philadelphia area to Austin. This year, the effort is ramping up again, as Amplify Philly gets ready to take Philly back to SXSW in March 2017. Our collective mission is to attract the best talent, clients, and consumers to live, work, and play in Philadelphia.
