No NAT was involved there indeed. Typically conferences can get a
temporary prefix from their local RIR for conference-alike setups.

Of course that does require one to arrange uplinks who will announce
that prefix, a friendly LIR etc etc etc. Thus this all boils down on how
large your setup will be and how good your want your network to perform.
