Well I think maybe it would be a good idea to ask one of the company's for a custom made trip and they would organise it and all we would have to do is go.
Nice idea but most trips I've seen cost well over 1K per person. I can't totally remember the cost for HET 2007 but it was quite affordable for most, sure it was around the £400 mark and a lot of the hotels we stayed in included dinner and breakfast.

I'd be willing to help out.
My concern wasn't as much the route planning, more how you go about reserving hotels for a good price and securing them before you get a deposit from anybody.
I guess Premier Inns here in the UK reserve your room and you just pay on arrival so there must be hotels abroad do the same. It's just a bit of responsibility for an organiser to reserve rooms on their credit card but I guess maybe that's the only way to do it, and ensure full payment is made from attendees well in advance.
