Japanese company "Stroly," an online map platform, is sponsoring the SXSW map this year

AUSTIN, Texas, March 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Stroly, developer, and operator of an online map platform service, is participating in SXSW (South by Southwest) Conference and Festivals event this year as the official map sponsor. The map displays all the available conferences, events, exhibits and transportation from March 8th to the 17th, when the event takes place in the city of Austin, Texas. This year, the map will also be available online through Stroly's map platform, making the graphic map usable with real-time GPS location information.

SXSW is held throughout the downtown Austin area, and thus official maps of all the conferences, live concerts, facilities with exhibits, and modes of transportation available are important sources of information for participants. More than 45,000 maps are handed out during the multiple day event, and this year for the first time those maps will be distributed online as well as in print using the Stroly platform.

With the patented technology developed by Stroly, maps available online have the same design as those printed on paper. They can be accessed via mobile devices with the display of GPS coordinates in real-time. Moreover, historical maps of Austin and original illustrated maps can be used too, which can provide a different and engaging experience to visitors in the city. One of the goals of SXSW is to bring together innovative ideas from around the world, and Stroly is just the company to contribute with this and other map innovations.

Not only is Stroly participating as a sponsor, but Stroly has also won a spot in the very popular "SXSW Pitch" event this year. A highly competitive event that selects only 50 startups from hundreds of submissions for the chance to present in front of a panel of judges and a live audience. Many now-famous and popular products have been presented here before skyrocketing to success.

Stroly will also be exhibiting their service and service features at the Trade Show event, March 10th to the 13th. You can find them at Booth #919 in the International Pavilion area.
