This week Christine Lu of the China Business Network is in town again and every time she is here she manages to organize a great party. This time it’s no different: on Saturday February 28 there will be a pre-SXSW cocktail at M1NT Shanghai.
Never heard about SXSW before? It’s the abbreviation for South by Southwest, a huge film, music and interactive festival in Austin, Texas (website). This year China’s tech sector will also be present at the interactive festival, and one of the aims of this party is to hightlight that. Expect a combination of networking, good food and drinks (free Moet & Chandon from 9-10 PM for example), great music and the opportunity to join a private Dom Perignon event at M1NT after 11:30 PM. So far an impressive list of high-tech & internet executives, as well as VC’s, bloggers and journalists have confirmed their attendance (see here for the current list, scroll down to end of page).
Entry fee is RMB 200 and part of the proceeds go to the Jet Li Foundation. RSVP is necessary at http://sxswshanghai.eventbrite.com/. Maximum number of participants is 150. Start: 9 PM.
Hope to see you there! If you cannot be there follow the party on Twitter, hashtag: #sxswshanghai
