“2007, some 6,500 people attended SXSWi. Last year, it passed 19,000, triple the 2007 attendance. And this year, the conference expects ‘healthy growth’ again.”

Aww come on! There are 30,000 in the metro area, and then there is Air BNB and rentals, AND they’re building a giant new hotel where Emo’s used to be. There’s plenty of room!
