> A question that came up during the recent AppSec-US has been raised again

> Option 1: Lodging (hotel) paid by the conference
> Option 2: Lodging (hotel) paid by the conference plus limited travel
> Option 3: Keep as is, no lodging of travel paid
> Just a quick sum:

> Option 1: 1 night about 100 Euro, total about 9600 Euros (paying two
> Option2: Top the expenses at from Europe to 500 Euro, Out of Europe: 1000
> Assuming 3/4 of the speakers being form Europe, 1/4 from out of Europe

> 36 * 500 = 18000
> 12 * 1000 = 12000
> Hotel expenses: 9600
> Total: 39600 Euro
> For sure, option 2 would have a serious impact in the budget and cannot be
> done without serious increase the ticket price
> Option 1 is still a major post of the budget.
> Looking forward to hear your opinion!
