Actually people do that every time, but yes I anticipate it being an annoying challenge.

I will look into this. I don't anticipate carrying a 40" screen in my luggage, but I imagine that the price of hiring one from the hotel is about an order of magnitude more than the purchase price with delivery.

A possible alternative would be to get a small projector that does fit in my luggage, maybe a webcam, and dedicate a laptop to webex, which does have video. Less than ideal, but then, so are the conditions in the room as a rule…

I imagine the most important piece of equipment - apart from a scribe who takes careful notes - would be a few microphones that people use. Maybe we'll have the sound desk setup that we have sometimes had.

In any event, we'll do our best to ensure we have a half-reasonable system, wifi permittin' and the crick don' rise.
