I'm a little confused. You have to pay to attend this event?

I've attended similar events in places like San Francisco and Atlanta, but
they were completely paid for by the sponsoring organizations.

It benefited the investors because they got the first chance at any
products/ideas coming out. It also benefitted the sponsors because their
name was seen (advertising/promotion).
