If I'm a major international organization looking for a place to hold a major conference, I can't imagine any destination in the US would be high on my list right now.

Maybe there are additional security measures in place for checked bags? better screenings, bomb sniffing dogs?

This is the only thing that would make sense. But if so, geez, I remember puffer machines I referred to as the Marilyn Monroe scanners that checked for bomb residue. Those things seemed much more likely to be effective than the nudie scanners.

Possibly.

On the other hand, the fire danger from lithium batteries is much less in the cabin than in the cargo hold. The fires are noticed right away and can be extinguished. Putting all these lithium batteries in the cargo hold where a fire can go undetected for a while, and can be harder to extinguish, is certainly an extra risk.

Well he said there's a box. Maybe it's bomb proof? Can you make a bomb proof box?

Does anyone with an IQ over 90 actually think the TSA does anything useful?
