GOVIS was quoted $1,500 for wifi access at the Town Hall for our GOVIS mini-conference.  Wired access is included in the venue rental. 
 
So I took down 5 Merakis and ran TheFreeNet from 1 wired access point.  Supported 14 users / 300 Mb for the day.  So for small gatherings (<50), this type of setup works well.

So did they pay the $1500 in the end?

For such events Meraki seems a godsend. I had a colleague who had to
install iBooks with a Woosh wireless at a trade show. It was quite a
struggle for him to get it set-up properly and I don't want to kno
what the client had to pay for that service. Maybe we should be
approaching people like TSB Arena, TePapa and other venues?! What
about Beehive & co?
