Could you send this around please?

For reference I have extracted some numbers from the 2013
spreadsheet:

Total attending: 77
Of which
        Paid earlybird: 17      (€180)
        Paid full:      22      (€250)
        Paid student:    3      (€ 50)
        Sponsors:       16
        Speakers:       18
        Organiser:       1

Income:
        Fees:           € 8155   (€8700 less EventBrite fees)
        Sponsors (7):   €10000

        TOTAL:          €18155

Costs:
        Venue:          € 5150
        catering:       € 5540
        t-shirts:       €  765
        speaker travel: € 1834
        speaker accom:  € 1400
        pre-conf food:  €  220
        conf dinner:    €  904
        other:          €  430

        TOTAL:          €16243

In June 2013, £1 ~ €1.2
In June 2015, £1 ~ €1.4

I assume we will run the budget and event in UK Pounds.

I think we should be providing a reasonable lunch plus morning and
afternoon tea/coffee - probably with the 'tray bakes' option or
similar.

We need to set some sponsorship levels. 2013 had €1000, €2000, €3000
though nobody took up the top level. Using 2013 exchange rates that
would have been £830, £1660, £2500. We could go for £750, £1500,
£2000 or perhaps £800, £1200, £1800. Opinions?
