WE ARE BRINGING THE FUTURE TO SXSW
The future of frontier technologies is being created right now in Vancouver, Canada. Local pioneers are leading global innovation in AI, Web3, the Metaverse, and AR/VR. This March, experience it all at SXSW in Austin, TX.
CREATORS, DOERS & INNOVATORS WHO ARE SHAPING THE WORLD
Frontier technologies are thriving in Vancouver. We’ve got the second largest VR/AR/Metaverse industry globally, internationally recognized AI and cleantech industries, and a world-leading cluster of film, television, gaming, VFX and animation firms including Disney, Microsoft, Electronic Arts (EA), Sony Pictures, and Imageworks.
We are home to pioneers in robotics, quantum computing, and biotech with the global antibody leader Abcellera, and in blockchain technologies with the homegrown unicorns Layerzero and Dapper Labs. We are producing exponentially more frontier tech ‘unicorns’ (companies with billion dollar valuations) every year.
