Controling Access to the Internet

I had an interested situation happen to me yesturday that I would like to share. CAAO is going to be exhibiting at a upcoming event at the CSU Wolstien Center. Internet access is an additional cost of $175. I did not need CSU's internet connection as I have my own wirless connection in my laptop via Alltel's service. I was told that I am not allowed to bring in my own connection and would have to pay $175 or go without. So I had a decision to make...do I pay 3 months of DSL to exhibit for 4 hours or do I go without. Due to limited buget I decided to go without.
Is this going to start a trend? Are we going to see more meeting facilities use this tactic?
Interested in hearing your comments.
