[Yapc-na-organizers] Corporate Pricing

So in addition to planning YAPC::NA 2009 I am working on the  
Pittsburgh Perl Workshop 2008.  Something that was discussed at YAPC   
this year was having a corporate pricing model in addition to the low  
cost price.  The problem I understand that this would try to solve is  
the perception that YAPC has little value because it has a little  
price.  If this is a real problem for YAPC then I think it will also  
be one for PPW.

Has anyone already given this some thought that they could share?  Do  
have any idea of how many people corporate pricing would help?

I have no interest in offering a cooperate rate without giving extra  
perks.  I am just not clear what the perks should be yet.

I am also concerned about this strategy.  Do we make it really  
expensive in the thousands like some other corporate conferences?   
That seems very extreme.  But raising it just a few hundred dollars  
does not seem like it would help to add more perceived value as it  
would still be inexpensive.
