SXSW Eco's PanelPicker is open for voting! From corporations using biomimicry to better their products to saving forests with paper, the sessions submitted for 2013 are as diverse and exciting as the event itself. Our staff has been hard at work developing new and improved events for this year's conference including:
<li>[The Startup Showcase](http://www.sxsweco.com/startup-central): expanded to include green tech, clean web and social impact companies.
<li>[Place by Design](http://www.sxsweco.com/program/place-design): a public space design competition that is brand new for 2013.
<li>Professional Development tracks such as Run Your NGO Like a Startup with more to be announced soon.
We'll begin announcing speakers and panels in a couple of weeks, but you have until next Friday (May 24th at 11:59PM) to vote for this year's programming. Don't miss this opportunity to choose the sessions you find most compelling for SXSW Eco 2013! [Vote now!](http://panelpicker.sxsw.com)
