Defense innovation and space-related content are a more significant part of programming at SXSW than ever before. Last year, there were over 25 space and defense-related programs, panels, and parties throughout downtown Austin.


This year, the aerospace and defense community will come together to host six days of programming from March 9th - 14th at SXSW, in addition to several SXSW panels. With Austin quickly becoming the center of gravity for space and defense innovation, the communities will come together during SXSW like never before.

This highly-curated reception will bring innovators together for an exclusive event featuring forward-thinking leaders in the space and defense innovation sectors globally, to facilitate expanding networks with ideal contacts.
