"SBS is a true founding partner in believing in the importance of creating a new opportunity for festival goers and joining forces in year one to make some incredible connections happen. We're excited for what's to come."

"Though US Hispanics share a language, the community is a mosaic of different cultures and communities. SBS & AIRE Radio Networks' goal is to deliver organic connections to Hispanic consumers through unique entertainment content distributed across multiple devices," said Stephen Hobbs Vice President of Entertainment at SBS. "Our partnership with SXSW underlines the fact that we recognize SXAmericas as the intersection where new ideas, technology and culture meet."

With new events such as SXSW ECO and SXSW EDU and now SXSW V2V, there is an opportunity to bring additional niche industries together to further discovery via learning, sharing and networking. While the U.S. Latino population continues to explode, its creative influencers can be found in key markets across the country such as Miami, Los Angeles, New York, and Austin.
