We are back in Austin for SxSW 2012. After having our initial event in 2011, we decided to return to

Austin again this year. We are going to convert the Old School Grill in downtown Austin for the entire weekend during the interactive portion of the South by Southwest Conference in Austin Texas, Mar. 9-11, 2012, to become a “Canada House” in the middle of all the SxSW action. Our venue will be a hub of activity where people can meet, grab a bite to eat, recharge their laptops while seeing the best of Canadian Technology.

The purpose of this event is to promote Canada as a place in which to do business by highlighting Canada’s Digital Media Technology to attendees who descend on Austin Texas for the SxSW Conference.

The event will run Friday, March 9th, Saturday March 10th & Sunday March 11th 2012 and it will feature Canada’s leading edge technologies companies. Guests at SXSW will be able to see innovation being created in Canada.

Company Showcase Showdown and Lounge Participant Companies

Companies will be able to display their unique technology in an interactive atmosphere. There will be tables set up to showcase in front of the attendees of the event all weekend. Throughout the weekend, attendees are encouraged to vote for their favourite technology company using their smartphone to cast their ballot. A winning company will be announced at the end of the weekend.


We would like to thank our sponsors for their generous support. Without them, this event would not be possible. Through each company’s support, the Canada Lounge at North of 41 is able to help entrepreneurs expand their networks globally.
