Short answer: Yes, business podcasters can (and do) get value out of podcasting conferences, meetup groups, and other gatherings that tend to attract the hobbyist podcaster and fans of podcasters.
But you need some survival skills to make sure you don't get discouraged when the conversation is about swapping promos, making money for coffee, or clamoring for autographs of "famous" podcasters you've never heard of.
