New at SXSW: Future Mobility Showcase
A newly-announced element for the SXSW 2019 is the Future Mobility Showcase, which brings an exciting new element to the Trade Show (scheduled March 10–13).
The Future Mobility Showcase will be a collection of transportation-focused companies, ranging from autonomous vehicles to next-generation spacecraft and beyond, that will bring their new and innovative concepts to Austin in March.
Although some automobile concepts and designs will be featured within this space, the Future Mobility Showcase will emphasize innovations in areas that range from spacecraft to drones to commercial trucking to trains.
