That's about how to be a meeting host, and it's mostly about terminal
rooms and social events.

Is there a list anywhere of minimum requirements without which it's
not even worth looking at a venue?  I'd expect that if a place doesn't
have (as some examples) a meeting room big enough for a plenary, a set
of sufficently large meeting rooms for sessions, a place for a
terminal room, a place to have coffee and snacks, and the ability to
provision Internet access in meeting rooms and guest rooms, forget it.
