Hi Peter,

You can dig into this yourself, by picking the event you are curious 
about, such as Portland FOSS4G:

- I searched for the venue, and found the exact specs on the venue site: 

- then I notice in the Portland bid, they list the exact ballrooms/rooms 
used for exhibits etc 

That should give you square footage etc.
