How do we encourage real-life networking at conferences?

Conferences are in large part supposed to be about networking, but everywhere I looked, everyone was completely absorbed (or pretending to be absorbed) by their personal electronic device.  I went to several smaller conferences this year, and this was not the case.  I’m wondering if with so many people around, no one wanted to look like they didn’t have something to do, so they were all doing what has become the socially acceptable time filler.  

That's what Leslie Morgan said she saw at Esri UC this year. I saw it too. How do we encourage live social interaction during this special time, once a year, when we are all together?
