Good points. Would you believe I've never been to a convention-type industry event? Thus far, I've enjoyed hearing what friends and mentors have had to say about events they've attended. In this way, they become filters, but it does preclude me from much of the networking taking place at such events.

Outside the business sector, I do make a point of attending a couple motorsport events during the year, at which point I enjoy spending time with friends and mentors in person. Typically, they will introduce me to people they've met along the way. It's like referral business.

I think you've got some good points, here, Brian. Makes me wonder how event organizers might alter their schedules and formats to better facilitate long term (professional) relationships.
