Since late July the SXSW Housing Department has made thousands of hotel reservations for registrants for our events and Austin hotels are nearly sold out for certain SXSW dates. Because events are back-to-back or overlapping, March 8 through 11 dates are difficult to find at a single hotel. You can check the updated list of hotels and their availability online. (SXSWedu registrants–good downtown hotels are still available. Make your reservation when you purchase your registration.)
Career-enhancing connections make the SXSW Interactive Festival so special to so many digital creatives. Come to Austin in March to connect yourself (or your company) to the new ideas, new technologies and new business opportunities that will shape the future, as well as game-changing insights from the world's most innovative thought-leaders. Registration for the 2014 SXSW Interactive Festival opens the first week of August 2013 -- buy your badge early to take advantage of the lowest prices and the best selection of lodging.
