The TechSet and Windows Mobile hosted very special event at the classic Belmont Lounge on Friday March 13th during SXSW Interactive 2009.
Guests relived the unique and stylish genre that conjured scenes from Las Vegas and Palm Springs during the Sinatra era. We were surrounded by incredible and pioneering entrepreneurs and influencers as we created our own Rat Pack rich with relationships that will propel us long after the curtain closed on SXSW.
In the end, 1,015 guests helped create one of the most exciting after dark events during SXSW.
Stephanie Agresta, the team at Windows Mobile, and I thank you for spending part of your evening with us!
I’ll let the pictures tell the rest of the story…
