TiEcon is  TiE’s premier annual event and is the largest convention in the world dedicated to entrepreneurs. TiE is a global, not-for-profit, non-political, and non-religious organization dedicated to fostering entrepreneurs across its international network.

I have attended the last 2 conferences (2007 and 2008) in Santa Clara and have had a great experience. You get to meet Entrepreneurs, Venture capitalists, Technologist and maybe even a co-founder for your next start up. I highly recommend everyone to take those days off and hang out at the conference.
