The UX Challenge organizers might be insane

Looks like the UX Challenge organizers changed a few details along the way.
>From the site <>:

- There's a conference fee of $2,000 per person
- The hotel is not included — it's $450 per person for four nights
- Contrary to what is implied on another
flights from Oslo to Svalbard are not included either

In short, assuming $1,000 for airfare to Oslo (from the USA

Ideas for acitivities for users at our annual conference.

Hi All,

We're having our annual user conference very soon and we're looking to have an interactive component to our presentation at the end where our users are asked to do something.

As for that certain something, we're not sure yet what to do.

We had thought of a design workshop but thought that wouldn't be too useful to have 20 some odd people argue about the merits of the design - it's better left to testing.

So I'm coming to you fine folks for ideas.  What kind of activity we can offer our users that make it entertaining and engaging?

Any help is appreciated.

IxDA NL and Chi Nederland, the Dutch local chapter of ACM SIGCHI, organize an international conference on interaction design. This event, by the name of 'Design by Fire conference', offers an inspiring stage for interaction, information, interface and experience designers.

After the success in 2007 a second edition was inevitable. We are very pleased with the speakers on the program for this year:

:: Brendan Dawes, Creative Director for magneticNorth (UK), will take care of an inspiring keynote titled 'C30, C60, C90, GO!'.

Usability testing at a user conference

Our Marketing dep't wants me to do "usability testing" at an upcoming user conference -- a gathering of our software users. The conference's purpose: for users to improve their software skills and to learn about upcoming product advancements.

I proposed a card sort, because it's low-tech, relatively quick, and needs little setup. This meets y needs (I have something I need sorted), but does not meet the conference goals; it won't help users improve their skills or learn about upcoming product advancements. So it got lots of thumbs down.
