Should I start an advisory board, and if so, how?

I run an annual, for profit, weekend long event drawing thousands of attendees, with dozens of sponsors, volunteers, and vendors. Just past our second year, the event is already a success, and growing rapidly. A few sponsors and other coordinators have expressed interest in being on an advisory board, which sounds great, but I have no experience being part of or running. My question is, how would I evaluate the need for this, what functions would an advisory board have, and what resources are available to learn how to build and manage one?
