I've no idea of the size of this event, and a lot would depend on that.
I organised this year's Linux Audio Conference in Parma, Italy, and
managed to keep it free (as free beer) - there was no registration fee.
All presentations were also streamed (audio and video) live without any
cost to whoever would want to watch them. Attendants did pay only for
optional things such as the concerts and the (very informal) conference
dinner. And of course for their own transport and accomodation in Parma.
But yes, this depends on a lot of dedication and hard work of a team of
volunteers, on some sponsoring, and on an institution willing to host the
event because it fits both to their mission and within their schedule.
Io lo dico sempre: l'Italia è troppo stretta e lunga.
