Come see the future of work with Slack at SXSW

Slack is headed to SXSW! Get to know our latest features, hear from industry experts and snag some swag. We’ll meet you at 3rd and Congress in Austin.

Slack チーム一同作成2023年2月23日

Some people love the summertime. Others look forward to the winter holidays. But here at Slack, our favorite time of year is SXSW, a festival where tech, film, music, education and culture converge.

Where else can we come together with creative people to share our mission of making work simpler, more pleasant and more productive? (While also scarfing down as many tacos as humanly possible.)

And in 2023, we’re going big—as in, taking-over-an-entire-block-in-Austin big. We’re calling it Slack HQ, and it’s going to be awesome.

Slack HQ
March 11-14, 9:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m.
3rd St. and Congress Ave. in Austin, Texas

What to expect at Slack HQ

An inside look at revolutionary technology: check. Tips for changing your work life: check. Snacks, photo opportunities and a place to kick back: check, check and check. It’s all happening at Slack HQ.

Step into Slack

Journey through an immersive installation to try out new tools and features, and to get a life-size look at channels, huddles, clips and app integrations. Oh, and if you’re looking to snap some post-worthy photos, you’re in the right place.
