What's your Conference Plan?

Recently, my job has had me going to a lot of conferences and events, current news aside, conferences are going to eventually start back up,

During this conference lull, I've been thinking about how to get the most out of them when they're back and some people have been giving me advice on "How to conference"

Some of its been pretty solid advice;

  • Don't try to plan more than two things you want to do a day
  • Don't feel you need to "get your money's worth"
  • Try and attend one thing a day outside normal events you'd attend
  • Conferences are the best time to catch local people you've been struggling to find time with

But now, it's time to crowdsource some wisdom!

How do you plan for conferences? Do you have any tips? How do you get the most out of the opportunities and networking?
