The one I have gone to, just a few times now, draws about 100 - 150 people I would guess and people usually come with whatever they were wearing, which for most is casual but neat and clean. Some wearing more professional clothing. You of course want to have a neat and clean image if you want to do business with others, but some won’t care.
Also, at our meetings, some have requested a few minutes up front to talk about themselves and what they do. So if you have your knowledge down and know what you are talking about, that could be an option (it would be good to have business cards at this point for handing out). If not, then you might catch the host afterwards (whoever runs the meeting) and tell him what you have in mind. So far for me, the people I have talked to are just the ones I have sat next to. Some have no experience, some have rental properties, some are in the middle of their first deal. You may just have meet people one by one, which I would suggest at first and see how the meetings work and meet a few, then see if you can speak up front.
