Ed: Might be useful but not earth-shattering. Makes the process of getting a hotel or group booking reasonably close to a convention a bit easier. All the events appeared to be US based only but a pretty comprehensive list (though few IT related events, mostly medical)
Not clear there is a lot of value here over any of the other travel sites, unless they work out to be substantially cheaper than group bookings, on that basis alone you would give it a try for US based events.
