Finding a good location for a WordCamp event is never easy. Reliable Internet access is a must, and plenty of power outlets to charge all those devices doing the connecting. And to keep ticket prices low the cost of the location is big concern as well.
When I came across the Skaggs Biology building auditorium rooms while hunting for a location last year I new that is where I wanted to be. And it worked out great. Lots of power outlets, good amount of seating and wifi that worked the whole day. Hard to ask for much more than that.
If you see John Levandowski at WordCamp SLC be sure to say thanks for getting the space reservations taken care of. He worked with the various departments on campus to secure scheduling of this location, and made it an all around smooth process for us to be there again this year.
