Just from my perspective, if we have enough people then they can
separately work on different aspects.

For instance at Bsides last year they had talks, workshops and a CTF.
Badges could be an additional benefit to the conference as is the CTF.

It all depends on what time allows. Although from my confidence in
Philip I am sure he would be able to pull off something interesting.

All we really need is something like Philip did before with a cheap wifi
enabled chip. He used the LUA scripting to run a web server with a page
on a chip the size of around a matchbox. So in my mind we could make a
badge like that, where you connect via USB or whatever and change your
own page to display a nickname or name and then everyone else is able to
view the page and get your details if they want it.

Just some ideas I have in my head.

Obviously some of the hardware wizards could obviously pull of something
