When you say "similarly", do you mean 3 each per hacklab, or just one?
(we've generally used more than one per room if we have the chance, but
that depends on the number of people you're expecting in each room, and
how close the rooms are together etc. -- none of which I know).

I've not yet got as far as booking flights, but assuming that I'm
coming, I'll be turning up early and may have some time between doing

Having said that, it's better if you have people that are dedicated to
the task and therefore have an intimate understanding of the way things
are set up this time round, so they can make informed decisions without
needing to ask anyone else, and for past experience that tends not to be
me, because I too often wander off and do video stuff.

I'm certainly happy to help with things like running cables and the like
though, when I have time.

Cheers, Phil.
