At least in the past the intention was:

Concession: full-time student, unemployed, etc - have a (current) card
            to demonstrate this at registration.

Hobbyist: anyone else who is paying their own way

Professional: people who are being sent on the company dime

The conference dinner on the final night - featuring the announcement of
the next year's host city and the Rusty Wrench award.

Professional delegates + sponsors + booze + a neat location for a couple
of hours on one evening.

Extra schwag in the bag.

> Professional Listing

A mention of your name in the conference booklet.
