Do I have to spend thousands to stream-and-record quality audio & video?

Live streaming video from Conference-setting in Dallas. Advice?
In August, the space science non-profit I work with is hosting a summit of related space science organizations and advocates. The hotel we are using has a company they partner with but we are not obliged to use. We will use them unless there are adequate options. The challenge there is the expense.
Is it possible to do this on our own? We have a solid group of interns and volunteers. What do we need to do to best broadcast and capture decent quality audio and video?
I use/am familiar with Ustream, Google hangout etc but have noticed varying results. Also, I want to have multiple sources/inputs to draw upon.
One other concern: The hotel internet. Is it common to run a line in for these type of things? Would a "mifi"-type hotspot handle the upload for the main cams? What about mobile devices as secondary cams?
NOTE: We are using the captured recording for a post-event DVD.
