Not sure if I entirely agree. Running six outlets per outlet provided
at auditorium is a sufficient overload - anything more is likely to
overload the underlying assumed electrical circuits. We can consider
this as a factor when looking at a venue, but seriously it makes no
sense to overload the built in venue provided electrical outlets
unless one wants to contemplate drawing a separate wire from the venue
level mains into the auditoriums (needs more Rs, and careful
electrical planning). To the extent one sticks with the venue provided
outlets, I think we did what was reasonably feasible.
