It was at the 1st International Conference on Computers and
Communication, at the Washington DC Hilton.
A large room in the basement was taken for the demonstration with a TIP
(terminal concentrator and IMP packet switch) and 2 56Kbps lines
attached to the Arpanet. I was told the budget for the demo was US$ 1M.
It was the first formal, public demonstration of the net.
I don't recall any special access security and I believe the conference
was open, so theoretically anyone who wanted to could come.
