How do I promote my web design freelance business at a conference I am attending (unrelated to web design)?

I asked a week ago some general questions about promoting myself
. Now I have some specific questions. I am going to a conference for aquarium hobbyists in a few weeks, and I thought it might be a good place to get my name in the hands of small businesses. I'm going to do the obvious, and print some business cards, but also looking for some other things I can do. One thing I thought about doing is printing up t-shirts that say something along the lines of "I make web pages" so I can go about enjoying the conference, but also make myself a big advertisement. I'm looking for more ideas and thought the hivemind could help.
I'm not a vendor, and I don't have a table. The conference will consist of talks on the various subject matters, and a vendor room where manufacturers and retailers will have tables set up to show their wares. I'm also on a somewhat tight budget, so only small-ish suggestions please.
