We had quite a bit of success for our last conference with offering free tickets for people below age of 25.
At least we were happy to get three people to volunteer to take the tickets.

If you sponsor students coming, that may be a great way to encourage new people to join the project.

So I would suggest to contact the top 100 contributors list to tell them, the offer could be extended to a colleague, friend, family member or maybe a student from their university to travel with them to the conference.
