Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 06, 2013
Salsa Labs, Inc. (Salsa), creator of the online and integrated platform for nonprofits and political campaigns to build a base of support, is sponsoring The Beacon: Lounge With a Conscience during this year’s South by Southwest Interactive (SxSW).
SXSW Interactive has become a gathering place for nonprofits who see technology as integral to accomplishing their missions. But with hundreds of panels and interactive campuses, it can be a challenging to find a place for this audience to meet among its peers and discuss the issues most important to them. The Beacon: Lounge With a Conscience, presented by Beaconfire Consulting, which is in its 5th year, provides an ideal location to meet during SXSW Interactive. The lounge will offer WiFi, beverages, comfy couches and entertainment provided by local musicians. This year's “Play Hard, Do Good” happy hour is sponsored by Salsa and benefits Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.
