I've had a chat with my colleagues at work who used to be the lead developers at Laterooms.com and they said that although it's through booking.com, they probably have a very similar interface to how laterooms interacts with hotels. The Hotel will have an admin screen where they can tell booking.com how many rooms are available to be sold via their website. Once they all sell out the hotel will probably go back into the admin screen and allocate some more if they can.
Since bookings can be cancelled at any time upto 17th August, 2015 without incurring a cost, it's likely that people have just booked up 'just in case' and if they don't manage to get a place in the Worlds they can just cancel the room. Which will mean that closer to the event, there's a good chance that more rooms will become available as people cancel their bookings.
