Conference organisers, past and future, take note: Attention of
attendees is *not* a commodity to be traded. Just because some parties
will pay significant sums for that, it is *not* your place to sell it
Your place as conference organisers, rather, is to provide value to
paying attendees. Their trust is hard earned, and easily lost.
