At the January 30th Tech Talk, Chief Programming Officer of SXSW, Hugh Forrest, introduced the new Space Track to the SXSW lineup and shared other new elements to look forward to at this year’s conference. The session was graciously hosted at the gorgeous H-E-B Eastside Tech Hub and provided the perfect setting for this future-looking conversation.

  • Attendees got the inside scoop from Hugh on everything from new additions to the Book Reading program to the overall shift in the SXSW strategy of including tech elements throughout the conference tracks. As always, Hugh shared his insights with a fun, interactive session that left everyone excited for this year’s Southby.
