This is a great idea. I just wonder whether the venue is really the one 
shown in (which seems very much like a 
football/soccer stadium) or (not 
very distant from it). In any case, the venue dwarfs any previous OOoCon

I would just add, if needed, the conference fees/admission. 
Historically, the OOoCon has been free to attend (or almost free, with a 
nominal fee, say 10 Euros, to avoid fake registrations). Does it work 
the same for ApacheCon? If it doesn't, it might complicate the 
"conference within a conference" model a bit since the proposal would 
have to discuss the possibility of allowing partial registrations.
