Yes, perhaps october would indeed be better.

You do make a good argument for not moving the EuroPython conference
away from june, though.

I think a day that is focused on business users would  definitely be
a good thing. Many of us are in the python business and last year there
was a lot of interest in a separate business focused event.

The second day could include some tutorials and introductions so that
business users have a motivation to stay on another day as well. 
The fourth day can be the 'real geek day'. Lightning talks would fit on
both the first day or if they are more hacker oriented, the last day.
