How to Get the Most Out of IT Conferences?

I have one tip that I learned the hard way, back when I was a young whippersnapper.  Don't treat conferences like fraternity parties.  It's so easy to meet a few people in the same field as you in the hotel bar, start talking shop, then realize it is 4:00a.m. and you have a $150 bar tab.  Then the next day becomes pretty much a waste, as you are either too tired or hung over to actually engage in anything meaningful.  It sounds obvious, but I've made this mistake, and I see others doing it at every conference I've ever attended.
