Estimated size is tricky given that PyCon has been growing.  2007 had
almost 600 people, 2008 is planned for 800, and the bid process is
projecting 1000+ for 2010.  We should locate facilities that can handle
600-1500 people.  (And given how much the Bay Area is central to the
Python community these days, I would expect the higher end of that range.
I wouldn't even complain if we focused on facilities that could support
2000 people.)

There will be a trade-show area this year and it seems likely to continue
as a desired feature.  I don't remember what the exhibits-only policy is
for exhibitors; there has not been an exhibits-only attendance mechanism
and I doubt one will be created.
