The annual interactive conference, South by Southwest, will begin this Friday in Austin. Local residents of Austin are preparing for the large crowds that are set to occupy the city for the next 10 days.
Last year, crowd control became a problem when unexpected droves of people showed up for one of the free music shows at Auditorium Shores. Austin Police were unable to contain the crowds which toppled over a fence to get into the show, which was at capacity.
Austin Police have said that additional officers will be on hand this year for the conference so that they can maintain order throughout the event. At any given time there will be 400 officers patrolling the streets of Austin. The conference runs until Sunday, March 18.
The Austin carpet cleaning professionals of WOW Total Cleaning hope that everyone attending the events for SXSW has a great time. If you are interested in learning more about the conference, visit the official conference website today.
