@ljrivera:I guess I should have qualified my response better. I was referring to the nicer attire for the evening social events. I understand that you may not be on the prowl at a technical conference, but what lady doesn't like a sharp dressed man? It has been my impression that most guys I have seen at conferences have dressed like slobs. Sometimes it is nice to dress up a bit. But you also don't want to look out of place either. I'll just plan to bring some khakis, a nice shirt, and maybe a tie just in case. The suit will stay at home I suppose.
