I think my business partner and I are going to pop down to pubcon Vegas this year (weeee). He was planning on coming back the evening of the 10th, but I get the feeling that evening is a primetime for networking.

So my question is, is the last evening of the event a full on networking night, or do people start trickling away and we should be more concerned with mon/tue/wed?

I see people leave conferences early on the last day all the time. Pubcon and others. Sometimes they leave in the second afternoon of a two day event. I then wonder why they bother with all the expense and if they took someone else's spot who would stay longer.

You will lose some people on the last day but I'll use last year just as an example. The last night had some great parties, hundreds of people to still meet and I am glad I stuck around as I met some additional great people.

This is one of, if not the best event of the year. The hotels are cheap. The conference is a good deal. Best to maximize it. I come in on Sunday to Friday and maximize every day. Use Twitter, the forum here (although not as active of a spot as I would like but that is because more and more attendees don't even know what webmasterworld is) to find others the entire week. You can just about always find someone to have a meal or drink during the whole week.

For the price of the hotel night, I'd stick around.

The corporate types who were sent by their boss will usually start disappearing on the last day. But the keen people who stay are probably the ones you want to meet.
