I'm not sure why a convention would cover costs outside of the
convention space and hotel rooms that they contracted directly for
(staff rooms, con suite, green room, etc). If the room has a person
assigned to it, then the hotel should hold that person responsible for
any room damage. They should have their credit card on file. As far as
hallway/public damage, I could see the convention might offer to cover
the damage, but not be required to contractually. The hotel has
insurance for this sort of thing.
I remember at the first MTAC the attendees were blamed for some minor
vandalism that was found out to have been caused by a couple of sports
teams that were staying in the hotel at the same time.
