Thought it might be better to have it on another day which is not Purim,
I am afraid it is a bit late to make that change.

Although AFAIK there are no committed guests from abroad, we would still need to
1) make sure there is a venue  (Sawyer could you, please ask them if
there is any possibility to move the date?)
2) make sure the speakers can reschedule
3) be hated by those (maybe only a few) who have already got the
approval for the current day and need to reschedule things.

Please share your opinion.
