Let’s talk about what’s new! We’ve got a new [website](http://sxsweco.com), a new [PanelPicker system](http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/), a new [venue](http://sxsweco.com/venue) for 2013 and a ton of new programming elements (and it’s only our first day)!
Over the next few months we will be rolling out the goods, from speaker and track announcements to exciting special events and evening entertainment. [Register today](http://sxsweco.com/attend) at the lowest rate to enjoy everything that SXSW Eco has to offer.
October will be here before we know it, but March is right around the corner. Join us during South by Southwest at the [many events](http://sxsweco.com/sxsw-eco-south-southwest-march-8-17-2013#overlay-context=) we're taking part in, including our launch party with [Geostellar](http://geostellar.com/), film screenings, a SXSW Eco meet up and a music showcase.
If you aren’t coming to SXSW we might catch you in your town soon! Over the next few months, we'll be hosting events across the country to get inspired and see what your local sustainability communities have to offer. Stay up-to-date by [subscribing to our newsletter](http://www.sxsweco.com/Newsletter).
