Signs Austin | ACL Has An Impact

Yes it is September, this year is really flying by, which means here in Austin it is ACL time.  Austin City Limits, ACL, is one of the largest music festivals in the Country.  This year the headliners are Stevie Wonder, Coldplay and Arcade Fire.  A couple of hot bands playing this year are Death From Above 1979 and My Morning Jacket.  This year almost one hundred thousand people are expended to attend, which puts a strain on everything.  ACL brings in about 73 million dollars to the Austin economy.  Every business in Austin tries to take advantage of the population boom.  Due to influx in business the City of Austin is strained as well.  For two weeks the City’s permitting department focuses on permits ACL and sign permits take longer to process.  Sorry clients, but we cannot control this.  While this might come as a shock to some, our project managers know about the impact of ACL and have prepared for this.

Proper planning leads to successful execution.  Every job has unseen variables, the key is cutting those variables down 90%.  I can assure you the promoters for ACL have everything covered from torrential rains to solar flares (even intoxicated musicians).  However, some things are just out of their control.  By eliminating most of the variables you are able to control the problems that do arise.
