I agree Frank, and it's not too late for 2008 as people are still motivating and managers are still making decisions. 
I've had several calls from locals, mainly in government employ, asking how they can motivate. After several verbal responses, I packaged some in an email to our local list. They don't capture all the reasons - if you feel inspired to improve on this and make it more generic I've posted it to the wiki:
If you feel further inspired to package as a 'professional looking' pdf for immediate use on our site, we'd be most grateful...

Someone just asked if there was a promotional booklet that they could print
out to show their boss to help justify attending FOSS4G.  I had a similar
request last year as well.  I'd suggest such a document be prepared for future
conferences and made fairly visible on the main conference page.

It might be as little as a double sided page, but it should be professional
looking, and chock full of justification for attending the conference.
Something folks could show to managers, but also something we could offer as
a hand out at OSGeo booths at other events.
