Austin officials plan to move forward with South by Southwest, the annual tech, film and music conference, even after a number of high-profile attendees dropped out over coronavirus concerns.

The conference, which is scheduled to take place from March 13 to March 22, has come under public pressure in recent days to cancel the event. Calls to cancel the conference have continued to grow, with a petition on urging SXSW to do so getting more than 43,000 signatures.

Here are some of the big names dropping out of the event:

  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Intel
  • Vevo
  • Mashable
  • TikTok

Despite the cancellations, SXSW organizers announced new keynote speakers this week, including Hillary Clinton and Andrew Yang.
