This year Scandinavian Airlines provided charter flights between Stockholm and Austin, Texas.

They also rented a restaurant across the street from the main entrance to the Convention Center.

During SXSW it was called SCANDINAVIAN HOUSE. It was a great meeting place for all Scandinavians and events were held there hosted by each Scandinavian country.


This year the Scandinavian House and SXSW was visited by Crown Prince Harald of Norway.


Among many Swedish groups we met wilt “Emma Elisabeth”.

We also met with a Saudi women’s rights activist Manal al-Sharif
