Increase initial conference list from 150 to 600 #430

I think increasing the initial load would be an acceptable quick fix. The payload from Algolia would be about 100KB (currently the payload is about 25KB). That shouldn't impact the performance too much. Most of the content Algolia sends is nevertheless not used.
I'm fine with either solution. I've also optimised the Algolia search result and it now only includes the properties which are displayed on the website. The load time wouldn't increase by 4. The page currently loads ~284KB. The Algolia query results is 17KB large. The optimised JSON with all conferences is now 56KB large. So instead of 5% of the loaded resources it would be 19%. At least for a cold cache. The size of the json could be reduced by another 1/3 by removing the
