South by Southwest expands to Las Vegas
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A popular music and media conference held in Austin, Texas every year is expanding Las Vegas.
South by Southwest announced Tuesday the addition of 'SXSW V2V,' set to take place over four days at The Cosmopolitan on the Las Vegas Strip.
The big-name event is just the latest indicator of a burgeoning startup technology scene in the Las Vegas community.
"Las Vegas is repositioning itself as a hub for innovators and digital creatives. We are excited about all the new energy in this city," said SXSW Interactive director Hugh Forrest. "This is the perfect place for this small, offshoot event to find its voice and grow as the Las Vegas tech scene emerges onto the national scene."
SXSW V2V will focus on bringing together the startup and venture capital communities.
The event is scheduled for August 11-14, 2013 and will include speakers, panels, workshops, presentation and networking opportunities.
