Las Vegas’ inaugural South By Southwest will be a small but important fete with plenty of potential.

In Austin each March, SXSW LLC produces a two-week series of events geared toward film, music and interactive professionals.
The Austin event started out as a music festival, but the Las Vegas conference is finding its legs as a business-to-business event.
