It’s that time of year again. The time where every tech geek, nerd, marketer, social “expert,” digital strategist, account exec, and agency intern will go mobile and embrace their inner weirdness. It is time for SXSW Interactive 2013.

Whether your days are filled with keynotes on SnapChat or exploring the Startup Village, you will be amazed with the amount of entrepreneurial energy there. Our piece of advice is this: know that sessions can be hit or miss, and not every one will be for you. So when filling your SXSW schedule, make sure to look for a session with a talented speaker or a known panel of people, versus focusing on the title (which their creative team probably spent countless hours creating).

But once you have your fix of sessions and panels, it’s off to the parties! This is where the real networking happens, make no mistake. Our ultimate list is below. In addition, keep tabs on twitter for @GaryVee’s #secretwine party, AMEX Sync concerts, and trending at the Driskill Hotel.

Take a look at that list, and let us know in the comments if we are missing any good ones! We’ll add them if you highly recommend them.
