This is the first year South by Southwest Interactive has had significant participation from presenters and panelists from Latin America speaking about technology in Latin America. To celebrate this growing "tropicalization" of technology, and Austin as ground zero for this trans-American technology cross-pollination, we're throwing a party!
Come network with some of Latin America's growing digital class, meet rising entrepreneurial stars, get a mojito (or some shots of Tequila) and listen to some cool tunes.
The party will be held at Copa Bar & Grill, one of Austin's premiere Salsa and Latin music clubs, bringing you a taste ot the tropics.
We are happy to announce a new sponsor of our party: http://DescuentoLibre.com

The #SXSWLatAm Team
The #SXSWLatAm team are a few individuals (Ricardo Guerrero, Fernando Labastida, Estuardo Robles and Tom Evans) who collaborated on a volunteer basis with SXSW to recruit Latin American speakers and panelists to submit proposals for SXSW 2011. The event is being sponsored by the Americas IT Forum www.americasitforum.com.
