I would also be willing to teach some sessions, given that we had a good showing of conference attendees. There is just something sort of sad about making a presentation to a room with only 5 or 6 people. It's much more exciting and invigorating with a decent crowd.
I think potential attendees feel the same way. An event with low perceived value is, well, a lot less exciting and invigorating, as you put it, and therefore less compelling. :)
It's a bit of a chicken and egg situation, and the only possible way to come out of it is to be proactive and create value for the event and articulate it aggressively.
