Here come the Dutch!
For the first time SXSW will be officially hosting a delegation from the Dutch Creative Industries, which will see a group covering many disciplines attending the Austin based festival. SXSW-NL includes "Dutch companies in the music industry, creative industry and corporate life."
Jasper Smit has more details over on Holland in the Valley:
The Netherlands will also have its own stand, the Dutch Booth, during the SXSW trade show. The Dutch Booth will be occupied by Dutch designers selected by the Dutch fund for stimulating the creative industries (Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie), and promising Dutch internet companies – among which many young startups. What’s new is that these designers and companies can take part in the exclusive Platinum Connection program where the organizers of SXSW will perform as matchmakers and make relevant introductions with other participating companies and organizations.
