In my experience, people/companies would like to register for the conference early-on, to take advantage of the early-bird discounts. However they might not be sure who (which employee) will be available and can attend the conference. So most end up waiting till the end to book their seats.
This feels broken! It’s not good for the participants nor for the conference organizers.
To avoid this problem, we’ve introduced a new feature in the Agile India 2013 Registration System, which lets you register for the conference by just specifying the number of seats. You can defer adding the exact attendees’ details till 1 month before the conference.
Also you can always edit the attendees info, up-till 1 month before the conference.
(We need 1 month’s lead time to get the conference t-shirts, badges and other logistics in place.)
