Bill i would hope the General is the highest paid speaker at the conference,if he's not then the general short changed himself.This link you provided is rubbish,this guy apparently knows nothing about conferences of any kind.People go to them to have fun and to hear speakers of topics of interest.Yes the promoter charges an admittance fee,how do you think he recovers his investment in the rental of the facilities?Fees from vendors plus admittance fees the promoter hopes to get back his investment,that does not happen all the time,as putting on conferences is a risky business.

Very funny, Scotty. Now beam down my clothes.
