    You are right about #17. I’m packing a powerstrip to all my conferences in the future.

    Excellent tips, Josh. I’d only add one other thing: Don’t be afraid to approach and talk with speakers (or conference organizers! :-) Most speakers will be happy to talk with you, will answer questions or can introduce you to someone you’d really like to meet but seems “unapproachable.” To your point above, most people in this industry are friendly and enjoy talking with one another, competitor or not.
