Mayor Kevin Faulconer has joined the consuls general representing Mexico and the United States to promote the annual Tijuana Innovadora event next month.
Tijuana Innovadora Creativa 2016 will draw international attention to the Mexican city’s innovations in technology, art, business, food, fashion and environmental sustainability.
Faulconer appeared at a press conference Thursday at the Mingei International Museum in Balboa Park to lend support for the event, and announced a special cross-border shuttle for San Diego attendees.
He said San Diego and Tijuana have “unlimited potential when you focus on building bridges.”
William Ostick, the U.S. consul general in Tijuana, said the upcoming event is an example of what makes the Cali-Baja region the “most dynamic border region in the world.”
During the conference, San Diegans can park at Balboa Park and take shuttles across the border to the conference, with expedited customs processing.
