Why is it that you go to an event and a) don't bring business cards or b) don't bring enough. Until we all use smartphones that can more easily exchange information business cards are the most effective way to exchange information. It looks very unprofessional to go to an event and not have a business card to give out. If you aren't making yourself appear friendly, how will you effectively network? Smiling is one part of the initial process of publicly declaring that you're a "Nice person." A simple smile makes you warm and approachable.
