    • SCHEDULE CONFERENCESSXSW 2013Interactive FestivalRecommendations FROM THE STAFF AT WEBBMEDIA GROUPSCHEDULE: 2013 SXSW Recommendations Updated© 2013 Webbmedia Group, LLC http://www.webbmediagroup.com 02.21.2013
    • Executive SummaryEvery year, Webbmedia Group combs through the SXSW conference lineup andselects speakers, screenings, workshops and panel sessions that we think arethe most relevant to/ interesting for our clients. You’ll find the day, date, time,name of session, location and a reason why we think you should attend.Important Conference Information • This is the 27th anniversary of the conference, and the 20th anniversary year of the Interactive festival. • Don’t sound like a tourist. Veterans call the conference “Southby.” Abbreviate it on social media as SX or SXSW. • This year, expect fewer panel sessions (there are still a few hundred), 300 trade show booths and 15,000+ Interactive conference attendees. • If you haven’t already made hotel reservations, plan to rent a car and stay in San Antonio. Were not kidding. Everything (as always) is full. • Last year, probably due to the rain, some people waited in line for three hours or more just to register. Avoid the crowds: get to registration right when it opens or much later in the early evening. It always takes longer to move through that line than you think. If you upload your photo in advance on the SXSW site registration will go faster.  • Inclement weather also impacts how crowded panel sessions are. Bad weather = long lines, so if theres something you really want to see, get there about 30 minutes before its scheduled to start. Get to keynotes at least 30 minutes early if you want a good seat. • Much of the action takes place at the parties. You can certainly try to show up and get in to parties once you’re in Austin, but it’s much better if you arrange to get on guest lists well in advance. The list of official parties is here, but also check Eventbrite and Meetup, where a lot of folks are also posting information about individual events.Webbmedia Group will be on-site for all of the 2013 SXSW Interactive Festival.Have a question?
