After a successful debut during SXSW 2012, we are expanding our agency and job-seeker mingling event into: I Met My Agency @ SXSW. This four day series allows registrants dedicated time to meet with their future employers. Check the [Meet Up Page](http://sxsw.com/trade-shows/meet-up-pavilion) for other events, including networking for startups and investors, futurists, and online activists. Check back for an updated schedule. The SXSW Trade Show is eager to announce another stacked roster for the [Next Stage](http://sxsw.com/trade-shows/next-stage)! This year we welcome an inventive, interactive performance from The Hidden Room Theatre and a lesson on immersive theatre experience from Punchdrunk and MIT Media Lab. Along with the Next Stage Performance Series, we will be showcasing panels of expert storytellers, daily film industry casting calls, creative presentations and musicians bound to draw you in. With plenty more Next Stage events yet to be announced, check back [here soon](http://sxsw.com/trade-shows/next-stage) for the full itinerary.
