Last Updated Mar 17, 2010 11:40 AM EDT

This week in Austin, South by Southwest (SXSW) is gathering filmmakers, musicians and tech and business experts for a ten-day festival that serves double duty as a massive networking opportunity. Wish you were there but couldn't make it this year? No fear, participants are twittering away with minute by minute updates and the HuffPost is rounding up videos of the best moments of the conference.

But what if you were there? How could you make the most of the event to make contacts while not being overwhelmed by the sheer scale of the thing? The SXSW organizers come to the rescue with this talk offering tips on how to make the most out of networking at a multi-day conference (offered, where else, but at a multi-day conference). Check it out and prepare yourself for next year. (Warning: the sound is a bit wonky so make sure to turn up the volume.)
