Advice to minimize bluetooth interference and maintain connectivity across multiple devices in a huge public space?

My company is doing live demos of a new product at a giant event on Friday. Our testing environment has 8 devices that connect to 8 iMacs via bluetooth. We've had some trouble maintaining connectivity just in our offices, as the 8 devices are interfering with one another. Getting ready for a nightmare once there are 1500 people mingling around with their phone headsets, interference from other equipment at the venue, etc. The iMacs are in two groups of four (already built into a display and can't be changed), and we're separating each group of four from one another. We're also trying to get the devices as close as we can to the computers, but it needs to be in the range of about 3-6 feet directly in front of the computers. Perhaps those who've worked at trade shows or similar have advice here? Fingers crossed, and thanks in advance!
