How do you run a successful conference?

Conferences can be very lucrative businesses, but you have be good at marketing, economics and logistics.

Avoid union labor and catering, and don't spend money on things that don't matter, like name tags. Plan that it would take a year or two to get where sponsors are willing to sponsor your event.

Start small, scrappy, and hustle.
