Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

With that in mind, here are some hints that can help you through your next event:

  • Don't smoke unless other people are.
  • Be enthusiastic and positive. Don't grumble, complain or lament your bad day. People want to do business with winners, not whiners.
  • If you don't know anyone, stand in the food line. You'll be surrounded by people you can start talking to.
  • Stay as late as you can. The longer you stay, the more contacts you can make.
