Why is it likely that we'd get more funding? With joining forces, you join
sponsorship opportunities and join numbers attending.

Unless there's some magical way of tapping into new sponsorship that I'm
missing, you still pretty much end up with the same result - not counting those
companies that used to sponsor each event, now sponsoring potentially less
overall on a single event.
