I can't help noticing that the registration fee has doubled from £25
last year to £50 this year (and that's comparing last year's normal
price to this year's early bird).
What is the reason behind that? Is Limerick so much more expensive
than Manchester? Have we doubled the amount of food available per
person? Has this year's conference attracted significantly less
sponsor money than last year's? Has last year's conference ended in
a financial disaster for the organisers? Or <wishful_thinking>are
we now paying our speakers?</wishful_thinking>
I don't doubt that even at £50 the conference is excellent value for
money. But at £25 it would have been twice the value for money ;-)
