Innovation & Technology: SXSW Interactive 2013

With SXSW Interactive commencing today, we take a quick look at some of the most important talks and events happening over this five-day festival of innovative ideas.

Held in the city of Austin, Texas, this year’s festival is bringing together an exhilarating mix of futurists, creatives and social media experts to talk about the emerging trends in technology, digital media and gaming.

Some of our most anticipated talks and keynote sessions will address timely and forward-thinking topics, such as how Western brands can survive in China’s booming economy, the future of 3D printing, new frontiers in smart fashion, the future of social commerce, and creativity in the age of technology.

Our Fashion and Media Editor Shannon Davenport is currently in Austin reporting daily from key events and talks. Keep watching the site for our full coverage of SXSW 2013, which will also comprise juniors and young men’s apparel. In the meantime, you can check out last year’s coverage of SXSW Interactive here.
