I have seen multiple models work. IMO, video taping and broadcasting 
supports a speaker model.  We are not having difficulty filling out a solid 
speaker schedule at Google and are having difficulty at 
IronPort.  Fine.  So, let's adapt.

Having meetings at two locations with quite different characters sounds 
great.  It would be nice if they were held on different nights, but not at 
all mandatory.  Many conferences have 2 or more tracks, where the attendee 
must chose one session to attend and attending both is not physically possible.
