When is a good day to hold a conference?

I am involved with the not-for-profit, IT Professionals networking organisation, IT@Cork.

We have our annual conference around the end of November – last year’s was spectacularly successful with speakers like Robert Scoble and Charles Handy.

I thas come time to organise this year’s conference and I’m wondering what is the perceived wisdom on good days to hold conferences?

Obviously weekends are out, as are Mondays (if something happens at work over the weekend, people can’t make the conference on the Monday morning).

What about the other days of the week? Tuesday to Friday – any obvious reasons not to go for any of those days?
