My 2 cents ( I was with one of the possible teams ).

I think the big factor why we didn't do a bid was the size of the 
work requirement. Roughly speaking the minimum seems to be:

" Half a dozen people need to allocate all their spare time for 12-18 
months plus 12+ hour days for 2 weeks of the actual conference "

which is a serious commitment. We didn't have enough people that seemed 
keen to put that much in so our bid petered out.

Many of the other events are over 1-2 days for <200 people. I'll make a 
guess and say they might be a 10th of the work to hold compared to LCA ( 
Others feel free to correct ).
