What about:
   thursday day1 = business
   friday   day2 = tutorials
   saturday day3 = hackers

Hmm. I don't. Business users coming on day 1 can pay full price, even if
they do not attend the last two days.

What make you think we need to have a first-day-only entrance?

Let people go to the "freebies booth" to get colored dots to stick on their
badges. Have a legend on a poster in a visible place (side-by-side to the
programme of the conference for example).

Would you want to have a "central place" open to non-paying public?
