Alternately, if anyone has space (even floor space) in a hotel room that they don't mind sharing, ...

Will it be possible for hosts to purchase the trophies themselves? This is not to provide opportunities to cheap out, but rather due to the fact that having to arrange mail delivery of trophies to the host school is one more thing to worry about. (even moreso if they have to cross a national border)
