Re: [nycpython] PyCon 2016 New York

The last time I checked into this, here is what I found:

- Running a 2000 person three day event in NYC will cost attendees 
somewhere between $600 and $1500 each, because of Teamster Union 
restrictions in all spaces where /coffee and tea/food service happens.
- Coffee/tea service alone averages $60 per person per day in large 
venues, also due to Teamsters Union restrictions.
- Guaranteeing several hundred occupied rooms in a large hotel, at $250 
per night, is probably not going to happen: many attendees will be 
local, and those who aren't will stay in Queens/Secaucus NJ for half the 
price.

I have found tricks around this when organizing PyGotham, such as 
hosting on ships, or in small classroom space with no food service. But 
this model doesn't hold up for large groups. Someone connected to a 
college campus would have to get involved, to make it affordable for the 
average attendee.
