I have only attended 2 years, and I come from the other side of the world.
Even if for some people it's a huge challenge, we try to make it possible
(remember than a ticket from my location is 1400/1600usd without count
other expenses).

One of the things we talk shortly at the after-lgm meeting is the target
audience; probably here is where we are failing. Is LGM a huge event for
everyone that just want to know what opensource design has to offer or is
more an event for those that make opensource design possible to work p2p?

Once we have a more focused audience we might be able to know why some
people show up or not an their reasons (economically/topics/etc). Making
any conclusion before that is not objective from my perspective.
