One thing to consider is that such a format might make it more
difficult to get adequate sponsorship, since presumably it would cost
more to host a number of small conferences rather than one large one.
Likely sponsors would probably have to lay out more money outside of
the sponsorships as well, since they'd likely want to attend multiple
conferences.
