>> Hi Eoin,
>>
>> so far in terms of sponsors we have:
>> F5: 3000 euros (paid)
>> Gotham Digital: 1000 euros (confirmed - not paid)
>> Watson Hall: 1000 euros (confirmed - not paid)
>> Cigital: will pay for part of the business class ticket of our keynote
>> Gary McGraw (around 3000 euros)
>>
>> We haven't opened registration yet so we don't have any figures for
>> training or attendees. We are expecting 250 attendees, maybe more.
>>
>> Cost for venue is 0. We are also expecting to have 0 (or near 0) cost
>> for mics, cameras, recording equipment and we might also have the
>> possibility of live online coverage of talks.
>>
>> About catering, hotel etc please find attached a copy of the budget
>> tool where you can see where we currently stand. We use 2 different
>> scenarios so please ignore scenario 3 which will be used in the future
>> to depict the real money flow. We haven't committed to anything yet,
>> we just have offers from various companies regarding accomodation and
>> catering.
>>
>> Currently our biggest concern, as you know from your own experience,
>> is sponsorship. We are working closely with the GCC and various OWASP
>> leaders on this so we are optimistic. I believe that by the end of
>> Ferbuary we will have more concrete details and thus a more realistic
>> budget.
>>
>> Please don't hesitate to contact me should you need any additional
>> information.
