I'd recommend either the Hilton Garden Inn or Econolodge (depending on
your preferences), they're both within a block of each other and within
3 blocks or so of campus. The details for either are on vintage.org
under the VCF/MW2 site.
Also, I still could use (quite a few) more exhibitors to sign up. And,
if anyone knows of a speaker who'd be interested in speaking at the
event, that'd be great.

Well, there's corn, soybeans, and bars. :)
There's a calendar of some events going on here:
Other than that, I'm not sure how much help I can be, as I'm a geek. :)
