Introducing the Maple Leaf Digital Lounge: at the South by Southwest Interactive Conference. The Maple Leaf Digital Lounge (MLDL) is a pioneering event to be held during the Interactive portion of the 2011 South by Southwest Conference (SXSW) with the intent to highlight and promote innovative Canadian companies to the attendees of the SXSW conference (mainly professionals from the marketing, web development, mobile, software development, social media, gaming, digital media and venture capital). We are creating a cluster of Canadian technology that will be promoted at this event.  This is a unique concept and Canada is the only country to host “a lounge” at this conference. It will act as a catalyst in promoting Canadian innovation to a large technology & media audience. 


Currently, the MLDL is looking for Canada’s top “Interactive” companies. Do you have cutting edge “commercial ready” technology and looking to promote your company (technology) at the South by Southwest Conference? By “Commercial Ready”, we mean technology that has been developed and is currently generating revenue or will be within 6 months.  We want to hear from digital media technology companies focused in the following industries: social media, mobile, marketing, multi-media, game development, web development or any related IT areas. At the event, each company will have a table set up/booth to showcase their technology over a two-day period.


What is South by Southwest?

South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of film, interactive and music festivals and conferences that take place every spring in Austin, Texas, United States. SXSW first began in 1987 and is centered on the downtown Austin Convention Center. Each of the three parts runs independently, with different start and end dates.  SXSW Interactive has attracted a strong following among web creators and entrepreneurs. SXSW Interactive's focus on emerging technology has earned the festival a reputation as a breeding ground for new ideas and creative technologies. Twitter launched at SXSW Interactive in 2007.


Submission details: Submit a one page executive summary highlighting the technology or service that you want to display at the Maple Leaf Digital Lounge.  This document should list the principals/management team of the company, the company website and any other related details of the technology.
