How can you get the most benefit from attending a business conference?

Many people have a tendency to sit in meetings and at meals with others they know.  I suggest you do the opposite.  Take advantage of the opportunity to network with the large amount of people you have never met.  I always made sure that I did not sit with anyone I knew and did not sit with the same person more than once.  By the end of the conference, I met and learned from so many people and also really enjoyed being able to help them as well.
