Having dealt with this in the past as an event organizer, one major
issue is that, depending on the jurisdiction, the insurance/liability
implications can range from "throw a little money at it" (i.e. easy) to
"all conference organizers have to get the super-duper 'works with
children' background check" (i.e. ~impossible).
