When I have to go to a conference, Free Wifi and all day refreshments are the important facilities for me because the conference may take hours and we need to keep our energies up.

For me, the most important thing is that the place is easily accessible and that it has parking. Because it's terrible to waste hours looking for a place or parking.

The free WiFi obviously, because during breaks I can surf the Internet to check some information or chat with my coworkers.
