I think there is nothing wrong with:

- negotiating discounts for participants sent to the conference by a sponsor 
as part of an "individual sponsor agreement"
- offering large number discounts

That is the "sales part" of the story.

Standard economics suggest:

- having LOTS of interested participants makes it surely easier to attract 
- the "reduced fee" has to be enough to at least cover the variable costs 
connected to that participant (meals, internet-access, badge, m² floor space
