SXSW's original goal was to create an event that would act as a tool for creative people and the companies they work with to develop their careers, to bring together people from a wide area to meet and share ideas. That continues to be the goal today whether it is music, film or interactive technologies.

14th Annual Multicultural Media for Multicultural America Forum presented by Horowitz Associates, Inc.
- The Edison Ballroom
The Multicultural Media Forum is a unique, research and strategy-driven event attended by roughly 400 executives and decision-makers from the media, advertising, technology, and financial industries. We first launched the Forum in 2000 as a venue to call the industry’s attention to the then-untapped value of multicultural consumers to the television, multichannel, and technology business.
The theme of our Forum this year is “Transcending Multiculturalism.” Though great strides have been made in asserting the importance and value of America’s Black, Hispanic, Asian, and other non-white audiences, these groups are often still conceptualized in silos rather than an inherent part of the general market, especially in mainstream media, where they are often underrepresented, stereotyped, and typecast. Our aim through this year’s Multicultural Media Forum is to lead the media industry towards this new paradigm of “transculturalism” that encompasses and weaves together America’s myriad cultures into a new vision of the mainstream that truly reflects our country’s vibrant diversity. Our agenda for this year’s Forum will include forward-thinking innovators from every corner of the industry who will not only frame the day’s conversation, but will also set the tone for the future direction of our industry.
