Conferences – Any Irish people care to impart advice?

Jeff Jarvis recently taked about creating a new model for conferences to which Robert Scoble shared his experiences. Jeff as usual has given some great advice and Robert added to that and clarified some of the matters. Previously I mentioned the idea of having unconferences in Ireland and now I’m asking the bloggers out there to share some of their advice from organising conferences in Ireland. Anything that Jeff and Robert have not covered? Fergal and Tom, you both have experience with events like these, got any advice?

    Damien, the conferences I helped organise were more conferences then unconferences!

    Ed and Piaras (organisers or Tech Camp) might have some input here.

    Ooops, to clarify, I meant conferences really. I think there’s a time and place for both.
