I'm assuming normal human behavior that:
[1] people don't come there all at once.
[2] people don't leave there all at once
[3] not all people would stay from start to finish
[4] some people would arrive before, at the middle, or after a talk
[5] some people would leave before, at the middle, or after a talk
[6] some people would arrive before lunch
[7] some people would arrive after lunch
[8] not all who registered would come (maybe recalled to the office?)
[9] there would be people who would come despite not being registered
[10] some people would go there even though they don't have seats
