While working on FSCONS for the last four years, we've learned a lot about organising events. We've also learned what you should definitely avoid doing at all possible costs. Watch this space to learn the 10 ways to organise an event that suck!

6. Keep the event affordable

You wouldn't want just anyone to show up at your event, right? It makes a lot of sense to charge outrageously for the entrance. That will prevent most hackers and activists from attending, unless they have a job which pays, and in which case they're probably not *REAL* hackers or activists anyway. So keep the price up, and the activists out! At FSCONS, we realise that everyone is different. Some might not have the financial capabilities of others. We try to keep FSCONS affordable for everyone, and we always keep the fee low enough so that we just cover our costs. We'd love to push it further down, but this depends on our sponsors and how much they contribute with.
