    Many thanks to all involved for getting this article up so quickly!
    I think this is a very hot discussion at present and having the space to take a stand on it is important.

    The thing is, there is no difference in cost if you had 2 free badges or 20 free badges, capacity of the venue is all that matters and its very likely the event will under sell tickets to avoid over capacity (down to Health & Safety and Fire Policy requirements)

    There is a very good chance people will know some of those 20 "free" badge holders and will choose to go simply to meet up with them, or see a panel.

    This reminds me, wasn't there a convention that was closed by the fire marshals due to over capacity?
