Hi Jean.

Perhaps you should contact our Marketing team directly at
press@apache.org , I doubt anyone on list will be able to 
answer you about this directly.

Some of what you are asking may also fall into the
realm of the conference planners team , but try
Marketing first.

See http://apache.org/press/ and http://apache.org/foundation/conferences.html 
for more info

Thanks

Gav...
