There is something strange and geeky about me mentioning the World Science Fiction convention on a wikimedia email list, but it fits the situation. They have a really great system of organizing and planning future conferences several years in advance. The convention is coming up for this summer in Los Angeles, the 2007 convention location was chosen by popular vote last year, and the 2008 convention location will be chosen at this year's convention. 

One of the greatest benefits of pre-planning conventions this way is the pre-registration that happens. A) It gives you money to start working with right away. B) It allows you to realistically and sensibly negotiate with hotels and other vendors regarding number of people that will be attending, etc.
