While my preferences run to hot water, preferably flavored with tea, rather 
than ice water, the answer is the same -- insulated bottles or mugs, 
refilled at appropriate breaks.  Certainly that is not as convenient as 
having beverages continually available, which I prefer too, but it works 
reasonably well as long as beverages are not dispensed by the glass or 
bottle by meeting site staff who consider each one a valuable resource to 
be carefully controlled.

So, again, I consider this a matter of convenience, probably even 
relatively important convenience, not one of necessity for people (even a 
subset of people) to attend the meeting.
