Annual tech, film and music conference starts this week.
The annual SXSW event starts in Austin this week. SXSW Interactive, which attracts tens of thousands of techies, runs March 8-12.
I reviewed the schedule and it looks like there aren’t any domain name-specific sessions this year. There used to be a handful of sessions, especially when new top level domain names were coming out.
Still, I expect some domain name companies to run marketing during the event, although nothing like in the past. .Co always went big during SXSW and Sedo organized some rather large promotions as well, including a Domain Village. If your company will be on the ground in Austin over the next week, feel free to leave a comment.
If you are coming, please bring your patience. For the first time since it became big, SXSW will not overlap with local schools’ Spring Breaks, including the University of Texas. It will be very congested.
