Never seen that done. Internet connectivity for shows is very expensive and not that reliable. Also it would just be a jumble of people.

You might try Periscope for snippets during the show. But like BRK notes, connectivity on the floor is pretty terrible and unreliable.
A couple of years ago, we (Eagle Eye) had live cameras in our booth. The bandwidth was great before the show started. Once the show started it didn't matter that we had paid several thousand dollars for the internet connection, it just didn't hold up.
The download speed seems to be ok - but upload is really limited. For the last few years we haven't had cameras at the show, but we demo live cameras from sites outside the show. It has worked out pretty well. The other issue is WiFi for demos on the mobile apps. The show floor gets so saturated with wireless signals that it's difficult to keep them running, regardless of the internet connection.
I will say that our experience with the internet connection at ISC West this year was better than previous years, but each trade show is a crapshoot as to what you're going to get.
The other interesting thing about the network availability at the show, is that the New Product Showcase does not provide internet connectivity for presentations. That may not seem like a big deal, but they have a 'Cloud Solutions' category as well as a 'Hosted Solutions/Managed Services' category. Those both seem to require some sort of internet connection, at least from my perspective. In their defense they offer the free show WiFi in the presentation room, but my experience has been that it's not wise to rely on that.
