They also tend to fail; a lot.

From an economical perspective of reward for time investment, do you really want them running a convention? Do you want to attend a high risk high stakes convention?

Can you imagine a professional convention where you where all talks are limited to 5 minutes, where everyone gets a microphone, where the speakers in the room come from some brilliant but random pool, where lunch ends up being a potluck? entrepreneur like to do new things, so don’t expect to see something that has been done before.

If you want a predictable, well organized convention, get an administrator. Don’t get an entrepreneur.
