Accommodation and travel
If you would be lodging in a hotel during the conference, it is recommended that you make a hotel reservation early. This is because there is usually a surge in hotel bookings around the time of the conference and prices are likely to go up.
By making your hotel reservation earlier, you might also be lucky to find a hotel that is close to the conference venue. Otherwise hotels in proximity to the venue might be fully booked.
Likewise if you are planning to travel by air, it would be prudent to book your flight early as booking at the last minute could mean you would end up paying a higher price for flight.
