Grow House Parties Promise to Bring Back Olympic Spirit to Vancouver

This year the folks behind the GROW Conference are kicking off festivities Vancouver style, circa 2010.

Channeling the international hospitality houses of the Olympics and the branded parties of SXSW, House Party@GROW is a first-of-it’s kind, multi-venue event designed to showcase the best technology hubs from around the world.

On August 14, the GROW Conference is taking over a handful of venues in historic Gastown area and inviting companies, cities, or provinces to host their own “House Party” to show off the talent in their tech community.

Atlantic Canada, Ontario, and home team BC have stepped up to take advantage of the international crowd at GROW to show off the successes from their regions.

But where are Quebec and Alberta?

Both provinces are hosting big events of their own in the coming weeks with Montreal’s International Startup Festival and Calgary’s AccelerateAB, but it would be great to see them show off their wares in front of GROW’s expected 1,200 conference attendees.
