During the first weeks of March 2019, Boost Human joined The City of El Paso at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin. We attended as one of the technology companies representing and promoting technology development in the region.
The One Region Booth showcased companies and representatives from Ciudad Juarez, El Paso, and Las Cruces.
The team joined a series of panels, demonstrations and events with the city’s representatives. At the show floor hundreds of people from all over the world got to try several of our products and technology prototypes.
The event brought incredibly valuable connections, great technology exposure, and provided a networking platform that helped us reach across borders.
Below some coverage by The University of Texas at El Paso, and The City of El Paso.
