Los Cabos Tourism Makes a Incredible Splash at SXSW Blending Great Innovation, Arts, and Sustainability

The SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, is renowned for its eclectic mix of tech enthusiasts, business innovators, and marketing specialists. For Los Cabos Tourism, it presented an unparalleled opportunity to amplify our brand message on a global scale. Positioned strategically at the Creative Industries Expo in the Global Pavilion, we showcased our commitment to eco-conscious tourism, innovation, and community engagement in a memorable and impactful way.

An Iconic Symbol of Sustainability:

At the heart of our presence stood a towering whale sculpture, not just a centerpiece but a symbol of our destination’s dedication to eco-conscious practices. Attendees couldn’t help but be drawn to this majestic structure, which invited them to contribute their positive messages and artwork, leaving their mark on our commitment to sustainability. Renowned local artist Ivan Guaderrama added his brush strokes, setting the tone for a collaborative and inspiring experience.

Fusing Art and Technology:

In line with SXSW’s theme of technological innovation, our booth integrated augmented reality (AR) experiences through QR codes. With a simple scan, attendees were transported into the depths of the ocean, where whales gracefully swam through space, or guided through a detailed map of Los Cabos, brought to life with interactive elements. It was a seamless fusion of artistry and technology, capturing the imagination of all who visited.

Educating Through Engagement:

An LED screen served as the backdrop, showcasing captivating imagery of our destination while highlighting essential statistics about Los Cabos’ biodiversity, marine life, and protected areas. It wasn’t just about drawing attention; it was about educating and inspiring action, emphasizing our mission for positive environmental impact.

Creating Buzz and Connections:

To further engage attendees and draw foot traffic to our booth, we hosted a coffee break on Tuesday morning. This not only provided an opportunity for networking but also created a literal buzz about Los Cabos, both within the conference and across social media platforms. It was a chance for attendees to connect with our team, learn more about our destination, and share their experiences with a wider audience.


Our presence at SXSW was more than just a showcase of Los Cabos’ beauty; it was a testament to our commitment to sustainability, innovation, and community engagement. By blending artistry with technology and creating interactive experiences, we captured the imagination of attendees and left a lasting impression. As we look to the future, we are excited to continue pushing boundaries, inspiring change, and inviting travelers to experience the magic of Los Cabos in a way that respects and preserves our natural environment.
