Con Management Advice

Hey /cgl/. Figured this would be a good source of advice pinched with salt.
I'm looking, as a cosplayer, to start up a new convention in the North East of UK, something which doesn't compete with sunnycon, because it's target audience will be the same as a standard con, with age restrictions and all.
So, I'm in the process of still identifying requirements, basing it on experiences around the con scene, as well as standard project management stuff, but I want to make sure I don't want to miss important things at this stage, because it will certainly affect how the event plays out in the future should it ever be ran.
I'm looking for advice for things to consider, general con management tips, and ideas on how to do things right. (things like con reg is something that needs to be approached well, or it pretty badly hurts the event)
Additionally, I'm looking to take on a committee, as it should be, to oversee and prepare the event. I'm not recruiting per se, but I'm more trying to figure out what I need to recruit for.
This is still very early, and the chances are against me that anything comes of this, but I figure it's something worth trying for, and if it doesn't run, then that's a lesson learned.
If anyone has anything they think can help, i'd love to hear it in here!
