To some – okay, many – Vegas is just a place to party.
Beyond the glitz and glam of the Strip, there's a very different kind of community emerging. VegasTech is a collection of tech innovators and entrepreneurs with a fierce sense of pride and desire to make Vegas the #1 new tech hot spot, and they're bringing it all to Austin in March.
The first-ever community representation at SXSW Interactive, VegasTech will showcase some of its top startups at the Trade Show, as well as an interview booth hosted by media partner Tech Cocktail.
They're also throwing some must-attend events: a swanky cocktail hour networking party on Sunday, March 10 and a blowout bash on the night of Monday, March 11. Registration is open now, so reserve your spot before they fill up.
And, as we announced a few months ago, SXSW is coming to Vegas! In August, we're hosting the inaugural SXSW V2V event for the tech entrepreneur community. Come to the meetup on Saturday, March 9 to find out what will "happen" in Vegas.
