AFAIK most access points are just plug and play ..they do support bridging they are very much transparent to the LAN on the other side.just con
There is nothing really hard in trying few configurations.Pls go and ahead have some fun.Go for Cisco AP's they are really user friendly,my opinion.
Even in Mesh the ultimate termination will be your WAN so there is no performance improvement if you are switching for mesh.Mesh are mainly deployed for reliability of links.Here we have only big auditorium so APs will serve the purpose i guess.

Most commercially available access points do not support bridging mode
between the WAN ethernet port and the wireless subsystem. Bridging
will work across wireless and the LAN ethernet ports only. Load
distribution is difficult (may not matter though given thin WAN
bandwidth). Availability and support might skew your decision to this
To avoid these, I'd suggest a wifi mesh. Look up www.meraki.com. Last
I knew, they were sold at $50 apiece. Do not have much idea about
local availability of similar systems.
