Binge Drinking In This Industry?

So is binge drinking a big thing in this industry? It came up recently where a few people mentioned that, e.g., at trade shows, heavy drinking is quite commonplace. They had bunches of stories of execs drunk out of their minds.

By personality and place in the industry, I do not really socialize so it's an unknown world to me.

Curious to your thoughts on binge drinking at industry parties, events, etc.
