ATLANTA (AP) - A group of Atlanta entrepreneurs, economic development officials and others are heading to annual technology and entertainment festival South by Southwest to market Atlanta as a hub for startups and mobile technology.

Gregg Simon is director of technology industry development at the Metro Atlanta Chamber. Aside from luring new businesses to the Atlanta area, Simon says the chamber's goal is to help businesses expand that are already operating in the region.

Georgia Department of Economic Development project manager Asante Bradford is also traveling to Austin, Texas for the conference and says the department is focused on luring video game, social media and mobile technology companies.
