Frequently Asked Questions Edit

(If you have anything to add to these questions, please click "edit" and add them! The Playcon committee -- and other ordinary toastmasters -- may be able to answer your question)

Why is this conference more expensive than last year?Edit

Playcon (Maxicon 2006) is a radical departure from other years. We want to get 500 people there! The only real way to do that is to run the kind of conference that will appeal to the corporate, non-Toastmaster crowd.

  • The price includes all meals (lunches, teas etc)

So we've chosen an up-market, professional conference venue to attract the corporate rand. If you would like to see the budget, please get hold of Keryn House at convenor@maxicon.co.za (Do you have another question on this topic? Click "edit" on the right hand side, and add your question!)

  • Thanks to personal contacts, we have negotiated late-payment deposits and excellent rates.
  • We have a professional event manager who has forfeited her fee to run this conference for us.
  • In a survey of Division H, we found that 65% (A WHOPPING TWO THIRDS) of all people who had never attended conference before said that it was because they didn't know about it. It wasn't because of price. It was because they didn't know.
  • It's a numbers game. The more people we get, the more attractive we can make it!


Where do we stay if we want to stay with other Toastmasters and not at an expensive hotel?Edit
