Can I set up a wireless network in the Trade Show?

No. When numerous wireless networks are set up in the show, the spectrums that carry wifi become overcrowded, particularly the 2.4 ghz spectrum. SXSW places significant investments in a wifi infrastructure throughout the Austin Convention Center that can support thousands of connections free of charge. Look for the SSID that is specific to the Trade Show. Hard-wired networks are permitted and can be ordered from the Convention Utilities Services via your exhibitor admin link.
