I have a conference success story--so to speak--although it wasn't a planned pitch.
Many years ago I attended a conference and didn't have any luck pitching my horror novel. However, later I was having drinks with some of the other conference attendees and pulled out a 100 word short, short that I'd written as an excercise in a writing class. One of the people in the group said "You have to show this to [the editor of a literary review magazine] she'll love it." Without waiting for my response he took it to the bar and showed it to the editor in question. She did love it, gave me $5 on the spot and printed it. It was wonderful. For the rest of the conference I could say I'd sold something. We all laughed about it being a $5 sale--But I DID sell something.

We too have a conference success story, it was arranged at the publisher's place, the conference was attended by all the writers within the forum, we discuss a lot about the increasing e publishing activities, and how this hampering the publishing market. It was a great conference and the outcome was really fruitful.
