Do you want to educate or motivate?
Would a speaker or a debate be more productive?
Will you need audiovisual equipment to show videos or make presentations?
Do you want to provide food and beverage refreshments for your guests?
How will you reach out to potential attendees to tell them about the event?
Is there a maximum number of attendees that you want to attract?
What is the minimum number of attendees needed for it to be valuable?
How will you pay for the conference hall rental and other costs?
Do you want to attract sponsors to help pay for the event?
