At this point, the most you can/should do IMO would be to spam the
registration list.  I suggest that you send out a generic status update
for the conference, with an, "Oh, by the way, we have a sponsor who would
like to get in touch with attendees -- if you're interested, please go to
this URL."

You might want to check into your local laws, they may even prohibit
sharing information in the absence of opt-in and your sponsor ought to
want not to get into legal trouble.

"...string iteration isn't about treating strings as sequences of strings, 
it's about treating strings as sequences of characters.  The fact that
characters are also strings is the reason we have problems, but characters 
are strings for other good reasons."  --Aahz
