Some people go to conferences to get the little promotional items they give away in the commercial exhibits. My tuba key ring from a music store on the East Coast is a good example of that.

Off this topic, I used to live on the island of Guam. Every June, at the University of Guam Fieldhouse, they held the Guam Home Show--where different companies had exhibits of home improvement ideas. Everyone went to this conference to score free pencils, free pens, free fridge magnets, and free scratch pads. Very few people went intending to find out how to improve the appearance of their houses!

I was one of the baritones sitting in the 4th seat closest to the trombones.
