SXSW Coverage 2010 for Small Business Owners

March 11th, 2010 :: Steven Fisher

Are you a small business that is looking to understand how to leverage the web better? Want to get some insight on social media and web marketing from the best in the business?

We have got you covered this year by covering this upcoming South by Southwest 2010 (SXSW) in Austin, TX. Personally, will be my fifth time attending this must-go conference for the digital techset. Originally, SXSW began and still is a music festival (that starts on Mar 17) and a little over 10 years ago the interactive portion started. The interactive portion (Mar 12-16) has evolved into the can’t miss conference of the year.

We will be covering the event from the road and bringing back video interviews with thought leaders, entrepreneurs and other cool stuff we think you will like.

Some of the things you can look forward to:

– Interviews with Entrepreneurs – Last year we met great entrepreneurs and thought leaders like Dave Delaney,Jonathan Fields and Alex Hillman. This year we will be

– Coverage of the Small Business Brunch – This year is the first anniversary of the Small Business Web and its launch at SXSW at a brunch at the amazing Moonshine Cafe.

– Exploring the SXSW parties to find cool people – Like we need a reason to go to a party to suffer for our art. The SXSW parties are great and the best ones are the impromptu one’s that are more intimate and have the best conversations. We will bring back some great videos so you can share in the fun.

Lastly, if you are going, I would recommend taking a read of these two posts on how to plan for and survive what is an amazing, fun, informative and exhausting conference:
