I may be able to provide accomodation for 1-2 people, subject to my wife's
approval :)

I have a car and could bring 2 21" monitors too.

Last year, the pavillion was at the furthest end from the entrance, so not
everyone got that far.  And, it all looked fairly boring.  I walked through
and there were almost no people around, and no visitors looking interested.
It didn't help that there didn't seem to be many people manning the booths.
I remember 2 people sitting at the KDE booth, but the others were empty or
one person looking bored.

But in other areas there was a lot going on so its just a case of getting
them to come over.  The area wasn't seperated as such - just at the back
corner of the large hall.
