Conference Pro Tips

  • Book lodging 9+ months in advance, and stay within walking distance of the Austin Convention Center
  • It can be nearly impossible to get a rideshare in Austin during SXSW at peak times
  • Bring rain gear. While the weather is typically nice this time of year, when it rains in Austin it pours.
  • The smaller, invite-only events are typically where the valuable interactions happen
