If I were to run an SEO event in Cardiff, would you want it to focus solely on SEO (and closely related topics), or cover other broader topics related to online marketing in general?

I'm considering also running 'site reviews' at each event, where we (the audience) spend 15 mins or so reviewing someone's website and seeing how we could improve it... Does that sound like it'd be a good idea?

What about 'how to sell SEO' type talks, suitable for all levels (e.g. not just business development / account managers, but for anyone in any type of agency or freelancer role)? Yay/nay?

The event will most likely be free entry, but out of interest, would you be happy to pay to attend such an event (amount depending, obviously)?
