    Suggestions: organize the room by industry area. Have tables with big signs-- Finance, Small businesses, Marketing/ Communications, Law, Real Estate, Technology, Science/ Medicine, Arts/ Entertainment. Then people can much more easily meet both people from their industry or seek out people from another field. Color coded name tags would also assist with this. Anything like this that would make the networking less random.
    Another suggestion would be to ask the bar to turn the music off. It is difficult enough to hear in such a big crowd, the music made it harder.
