Session Title: How Web Data Makes The Case for STRs in Austin

Earlier this year, Austin passed a ban on a specific type of short-term rentals (STRs). It's unclear if the economic impact of this decision was effectively measured. Thanks to data available on the web, we can actually measure the economic impact of STRs in Austin. In particular, we can look at whether limiting STR supply would impact one of the city's largest revenue drivers: SXSW. Without STRs, would there actually be enough space for SXSW visitors?
