comment: Follow up to previous comment, another thing to reconsider:
3) I got some doubts in bringing the speakers "away" during the party night. It could be the best networking moment, when people can address them with less hassle. Maybe they can have a "reserved" moment the night before the conference, or the night after.
comment: Great event as always, fantastic food, wonderful network. Little things to improve:
1) job description on my badge was in Italian, don't know if it was my company that provided it that way but for an English-speaking conference it should be fine to translate it.
2) Some talks were too framework-specific, so maybe not so interesting for people using other frameworks
