How much should the appearance fee be?

I'm being asked to appear at a convention in Las Vegas next spring. I'm a cartoonist who has done extensive work in the industry and a company wants me to sit, draw, talk and generally be entertaining on their behalf. They are paying flight and hotel and are asking me what I would want as a daily appearance fee on top. Thing is, I don't know how to come up with that fee. Is it my hourly rate? Is there an industry standard for this sort of thing? Of course, I'm looking to justly account for my time without taking advantage of generous sponsors. Anyone have any experience with this type of appearance that could provide me a range of options? Thanks.
