The South by Southwest (SXSW) Conferences & Festivals – a unique industry convergence of music, film, and emerging technologies that brings thousands of people to Dell’s hometown each year  –  kicked off yesterday with its first sitting President keynote.

And while Dell is not a sponsor of this event, we do have several members of our team speaking on official SXSW panels that I wanted to mention. They’re discussing topics you’ve seen us talk about before here on Direct2Dell such as IoT, security, STEM and entrepreneurship.

So if you’re in town for what The Washington Post last year called “a massive gathering where entrepreneurs, tastemakers and assorted creative types come to schmooze, self-promote and get their brains rearranged,” we invite you to add some of these panels to your schedule:
