Stay in the Host Hotel
Larger shows that are multiple days typically have a "Host" hotel. This hotel may have registration, is typically the closest to the event - or may be hosting the event - and offers a special room rate. Because of this most attendees and exhibitors stay there.
However, it can often be expensive and those on a budget often look for less expensive accommodations. This can be a big mistake!
With all the buzz and activity at the host hotel, there are constant networking opportunities just by walking through the lobby or being in an elevator and seeing people wearing their show name badge. Plus you save time and/or money not having to walk or drive from a further hotel location.
