One thing. Our projection of the number of attendees which is ~2500
people is based on the fact that we had around ~1500 people at last PyCon
in Bangalore. But that was also because of the ticket price. If we push
ticket price to Rs 3000, I have a feeling that the number of participants
will come down by itself. Just mentioning because we're getting a huge
venue. HOpe that we thought about that.
