The South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conferences & Festivals (March 8-17, 2013) offer the unique convergence of original music, independent films, and emerging technologies. Fostering creative and professional growth alike, SXSW® is the premier destination for discovery.
The Neighborhood is a style-centric showcase whose purpose is to infuse normal SXSW with a shot of style in the form of pop-up shops by emerging and established fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands, panels and Q&A sessions led by industry experts, a slew of activations and can’t-miss parties - all of which is set up like an actual neighborhood, taking place over a few block radius in Austin's 2nd Street District.
