Anime conventions and socializing

As I understand it, anime conventions are HUGE. Like 40K attendees. dcseain tells me that there aren't any medium-sized or small (1500 attendees and under) anime conventions.

So, how does the social side work? I hear complaints from sf fans about not being able to find or get enough time with their friends at 5K Worldcons, but this is partly a result of having a lot of friends in fandom because of smaller conventions.

Do anime congoers mostly hang out with the people they came with? See it as more a convention going (program track and dealers room) experience than a place to see friends? Have subfandoms that make socializing easy? Something else?
