I guess it all depends on the amount of people we expect to show up at 
the conference, and thus likely for the keynote.

If we have 300 people showing up, we may have to go for the restaurant 

Can we make any guesstimates based on the current registrations and rate 
of registration of the amount of people that'll show?
