I like these thoughts on paying for church conferences:

I have no problem with Big Conferences but our philosphy for our “Learning Conversation” is very simple: no fancy productions, no gifts, no big binders, no fancy bands, no fancy graphics, etc. Just provide good direct trade coffee, average pastries, a compelling culture engagin’ leader, and let people have good conversations. That way, we can keep the costs as accessible as possible to folks – as a way to bless both our church community and the larger city. $15/person and $10/student is a pretty kickarse deal.
