Outsourcing a volunteer based effort is simply meaningful. We are not
completely inexperienced in organizing conferences etc. since we are
planning to do it for the first time, do it modestly, a reasonably
visible show and be content with it. Also when you are planning the
dates, do keep in mind the availability of the venue etc.
First how many participants are we expecting, how big an auditorium do
we need, are we doing it for all over the country or Mumbai or
Maharastra. What will be the focus/theme?
