Instead of spending money on a fancy mat, you could use some tape and black and white construction paper. If you're lucky, a white tile floor will eliminate the white construction paper - you'll just need black. Lay out a chess board pattern on the floor, taping the black (and white sheets if needed) to the floor. Write the coordinates of every black square (using a metallic-silver color marker) for reference for the "pieces."
To generate interest for next year's cosplay chess panel, post about it in various forums, especially on the cosplay.com forums. You shouldn't have too many issues with finding pieces. If the thrend follows larger cons, you'll get many more applicants for pieces then you will have slots for.
Also remember that a theme should be chosen, and that you will need to select pieces based on certain criteria. If you choose to run this panel, be prepared to do some planning and organization. Just letting you know what will be involved in an undertaking such as this.

I am not the best at technical rules with the clock, but that will not affect this panel. I'd still need a lot of help with where to get a gigantic board and rules and such if I am around 2010 and we do this, etc.
