It's hard to imagine SXSW without its longest running Super Sponsor. We're proud to announce the return of Miller Lite as the Official Beer of SXSW. It's lucky number 13 for Miller Lite, with 2013 marking 13 years of SXSW sponsorship.
Just as in years past, registrants will be able to enjoy Miller Lite at events across the board in Music, Film, and Interactive alike. Miller Lite will also be giving out free badges and providing great opportunities for access to parties and events throughout SXSW.
Tina Roth Eisenberg by Julia Robbs
We are excited to reveal that Tina Roth Eisenberg will deliver the keynote address on Sunday, March 10 at the Interactive Festival.
Eisenberg grew up in mountainous Switzerland, influenced by renowned Swiss design and a lot of fresh air. She is often referred
to as "swissmiss," her popular design blog, which she runs out of Brooklyn, broadcasting with a European viewpoint and a love for clean, Swiss functional design. Swiss-miss.com has a growing audience of 1.3 million monthly unique readers from all over the world and was selected by The Times as one of the world's Top 50 design blogs.
The SXSW 2013 Trade Show is officially sold out! However, there are still great opportunities to showcase your brand at SXSW exhibitions. The SXSW Gaming Expo features the latest and greatest in gaming and geek culture. The Music Gear Expo is bigger than ever this year, with more space, new features, and of course, the best gear in the industry. In addition, new for 2013, we are introducing The Market at Auditorium Shores, the No. 1 place at SXSW for cutting edge art and fashion vendors.
SXSW Meet Up by Adrienne BirneyPlanning on attending SXSW Interactive this March in Austin? Or maybe you are considering attending in a future year? Or do you just have questions about SXSW Interactive? Then come on out to our NYC Community Meet Up!
SXSW Interactive wants to buy you a drink and give you an opportunity to meet and network with other technology professionals from the New York / Brooklyn area at Berry Park before you come to Austin this spring. See details for this event and more below!
The democratization of innovation is upon us as new technologies allow anyone to create what used to require large industries and expensive factories. Whatever you call this new breed of innovators—hackers, creators, makers, or DIYers—this burgeoning group has taken up the mantle of modern day Nikola Teslas.
The second annual SXSW Create will bring together local and international members of the SXSW community to share disruptive creations and showcase the latest tools and fabrication methods. This special event will occur in an exciting outdoor venue adjacent to the Austin Convention Center and focus heavily on hands-on activities.
