Amsterdam presence at SXSW Trade Show
Amsterdam will be present with a booth at the SXSW Trade Show from the 13th-16th of March. The City has proven to be a strategic hub for international tech companies addressing the European market. Therefore, Amsterdam will position itself as “Launch Pad into Europe’’ and host Launch Pad Sessions for international startups that are looking into European expansion. With this Launch Pad concept we give international startups the opportunity to have pre-organized one-on-one meetings with Dutch corporates, so called “launching customers”.
In addition to the Launch Pad Sessions, the Amsterdam booth will also host “Dutch hours”. During these Dutch Hours SXSW attendees from the Netherlands are invited to use the Amsterdam booth as a meeting point and to host meetings with their own relations. These hours will be during the SXSW Trade Show, 13th-16h of March, on a daily basis from 12.30 until 13.30.
Please note that the Amsterdam booth is only available for Dutch SXSW attendees during this one-hour time slot, as the booth will mainly be used to host pre-arranged meetings between Dutch corporates and international startups.
