I totally agree with you Jon. In our case we got WPD 2008 published in 3 
or 4 medias in Argentina. From that number, the half were published 
through journalist we met before WPD. The other half were people who met 
  previous WPD and we used WPD as an excuse to establish relationship 
with them and of course, we keep in touch. That's one of the reason on a 
event like WPD, you've an excuse to meet new people, among other things.

Kind Regards
R. inviting you to join WPD 2009! :D
