I guess my question was to known if things like planning meeting and discussion on details of the organization should/could happen here, or is this more a place for attendees (and potential attendees) to discuss the event and exchange information (social events, organizing transport, etc.). Off course both could happen here, but if used for organization it will probably get too noisy for people only interested by the event and not the details of its organization.
