Things Are Afoot at SXSW V2V!

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

With SXSW V2V only 5 weeks away, things are started to get busy!

First, this Friday is the last day to register at a 15% discount. So what are you waiting for? Registration details can be found here.

Next, the schedule is now up and we’ve been spending our days and nights perusing it trying to find the most interesting sessions to attend. Of special interest are the 20/20 Vision sessions, which provide:

“intense 20-minute presentations from established business and entrepreneurial voices, as well as up-and-coming creative visionaries. Located in one room, and spanning the length of the conference, this shorter format will allow audiences to experience a wide range of differing viewpoints and ideas from the people who are shaping the future. “

We will be sharing our thoughts on the most intriguing sessions that we don’t want to miss in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. In the meantime, here is one of our early favorites:

Dreaming Up Hardware: Making Your Vision a Collaborative Reality
Monday, August 12
10:15AM – 11:15AM
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Belmont Ballroom 1

You have a great idea for hardware and turn to the crowd to help make it come true. But product launches via crowdfunding have taken heat for extreme delays in production due to scope, funding, or a lack of industry knowledge of the complexities of product development. What are the three hardware project types? Is crowdfunding a technically complex product really viable? Where does building “something cool” and building a business fit in with what the backers really want? A designer, an engineer and a hardware startup founder explore what it takes to design and manufacture a great hardware product that can please both backers and creators.

We fell in love with the title of this session before we discovered the panel including longtime Baby! friend John “J-Ro” Rodriguez. This promises to be an exciting and educational session.

Beers afterward J-Ro?

Today is the last chance for a discount on your SXSW Badge

Friday, February 8th, 2013

If you haven’t got your badge for SXSW yet, what are you waiting for? At midnight tonight (Friday 7th) there will be no more discounts, and the badges will be at their maximum price point.

Here’s how the price for your badge looks now, and how it will look after Friday midnight right up to the time when you walk up to the Austin Convention Center and buy your badge because you forgot to do it beforehand.

thru Sept 21 thru Nov 9 thru Jan 11 thru Feb 8 Walk up
Platinum
(Everything)
$1450 $1595
Gold
(Int+Film)
$1195 $1350
Music $750 $795
Film $595 $650
Interactive $995 $1150

If you are buying a badge at this stage, and especially if you are buying one to come to Interactive, then please check out available accomodation before you head to SXSW.com to buy the badge. There are no refunds, and hotel space is at a premium this year.

And by at a premium we mean there was more room in Bethlehem.

Another Friday deadline approaches as SXSW gets a little more expensive

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

A quick heads up to everyone who’s not yet purchased their badge for SXSW 2013… the current discount level is going to end at midnight, Austin time, this Friday (strictly speaking, 23:59 on Friday January 11th).

thru Sept 21 thru Nov 9 thru Jan 11 thru Feb 8 Walk up
Platinum
(Everything)
$1350 $1450 $1595
Gold
(Int+Film)
$1095 $1195 $1350
Music $695 $750 $795
Film $550 $595 $650
Interactive $895 $995 $1150

Also worth noting that the SXSW Housing Desk is showing no availability of rooms from Friday 8th through Monday 11th. You might want to make sure you have accommodation sorted out before you plan on attending Interactive, because if you were hoping to get a SXSW hotel after buying the badge… you’re a bit late.

It’s the last day to get to the lowest rate on your SXSW badge!

Friday, September 21st, 2012

A quick heads up for all of the readers of The Baby! who may not have got the email blast from SXSW… today is the last day you can pick up your SXSW 2013 badges for the lowest rate. After midnight tonight (Austin time) everything moves up a price band.

You’ll still be picking up a discount compared to the walk-up prices, but individual event badges go up by around $50, while the Gold and Platinum badges get another $100 added to the price.

If you haven’t yet got your badge (really? And you’re a Baby! reader? Unless you’re waiting for some sort of grant to come through to cover the trip, who are you?) then head over to sxsw.com/attend, and we’ll see you in March.
