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 
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. :)
