Why the use of 'ser' and not 'estar'. Talking about a location (e.g. Estoy en el salón). Is it because the location is considered permanent for a party?

Location uses "estar" whether you're talking about temporary (Estoy en la biblioteca) or permanent (Madrid está en España).
The location of an event (party, meeting, etc.), however, is an exception and uses "ser."

Without context, a hall can be a number of places. Therefore, "La fiesta es en el hall" is one possible correct translation.
