Seconding wifi and power outlets. Flip charts/whiteboards would be useful.
At Access, we had one big room and one smaller room, and the largest group
split off into the smaller room. That seemed to work okay, but having rooms
for everyone would probably be a good thing.
Don't forget enough food. I didn't order enough and had to restock halfway
