In my experience, this is a great idea.
3. Get in line.
Similar to the last point, a long line – say for food or a drink – is one of the easiest spots to network. Because rather than having to go up to people on your own, you are already standing among strangers and it’s relatively easy to start a conversation. Obvious icebreakers include “what do you think of the event” or “what kind of work do you do?”.
Plus, if the line winds up being painfully long, you have an immediate bonding experience. 😉
