Just so you all know, when I go to a conference they give away diddly-cr@p.
I don't go, they hand out Windows Phone 7s. I don't go, they hand out Lenovo tablets with Windows 8 dev on it. I don't go, they hand out Surfaces and a Nokia phone.
If I do go, like PDC 2005, they hand out nothing. If I do go, like MIX '10, everyone gets a pencil set.
Just as a warning since I'm 99% sure I'll go to the BUILD 2013.
@Harlequin: If I really had to go, I'd be tempted to go on my own dime because of the possibility of free stuff. I'm a public employee, so if they pay, any swag worth over $50(?) I have to get recorded as property of my employer, and not as a personal device.
