I was thinking the same thing. In a case like that ( http://www.sanjose.org/meetings/facilities/floorplans/conv_layout.jpg ) Could use one of the large rooms (Hall 1) for key notes and the smaller rooms (Ballrooms/Metting rooms) for the smaller bits. Most of their expense adding services ( http://www.sanjose.org/meetings/facilities/convention.php- cops/medical/etc) are required after 1k people. If we said 999 expected?
