Plan on how to provide or exchange contact information. Wait until it or a card is offered by the senior person. Always accept contact information; a way to say thanks.
In a cross cultural environment, have bi-lingual cards. Give these cards with two hands, host language side up.
You can use a wireless application to exchange contact information. Before you give contact information update your email address and website address. Ensure each is appropriate for the recipient.
You can decide to be prepared with more than having cards. You could send an email to your phone which has your contact information, and an attached updated profile, or bio-benefit resume ready to forward for the asking.
You could exchange contact information by having the person use your telephone to call their telephone, and then establish you as a contact. Next establish that person as a contact. 
You could get a number, call, and then establish that person as a contact.  Go to “Recents” and mark the event under “Notes” the same as you would mark the back of a card. This is the new old school.

Know the name of table glassware: left to right Water, Red wine, White wine, Sherry, and Champagne. (This fluted glass is to be set above the others.)  Each glass is to be placed according to the size of the plate and order of the course to be used with it. A glass for Sherry can be omitted. No more than four glasses of any kind are to be in any one place setting at any one time. When eating in company water is to be present as a sign of hospitality. Another glass may be set in place for what you serve as wine. There is to be a two glass minimum. Informally these glasses could be the same size. Glasses stay on the table until each guest has left the room.


A Napkin is Not to End On a Plate Business Dining Etiquette 101 University Etiquette

A napkin is to be used to signal when eating is to begin. It is to be picked up at the lead of the hostess or senior person at the table. This is the indicator that others at table are to do so. Even at a dinner for two.
1. When seated at a table, a napkin is to be picked up and placed or replaced under the table onto your lap fold side towards you, prior to eating or drinking anything. It can be placed on your lap quartered for breakfast and for Continental or fast food, or in a three quarter fold the long way for dinner.
2. One corner of the napkin is to be used to correct conditions at table disturbed by the act of eating. Gently rub the tips of your fingers against the corner of one to remove foodstuffs collected during the course of eating. This corner could be folded under before using it again.
3.  One corner of the napkin can be used to blot (touch) the mouth gently prior to taking a sip (pour) of any beverage. The courtesy of napkin use is asked: to keep your grease off the glass, and to give your food time to pass.
4. A napkin is to remain on your lap as long as you continue to eat or to drink at a table. When standing or leaving a table temporarily, your napkin is to be placed on your chair. Some like to place it atop a book.
5. At the end of a meal, at the lead of the hostess or the senior person, the napkin is to be placed in a mock fold to the left (leaving side) of your place setting. The rule: a napkin is not supposed to end on a plate. A napkin is to look within reason as it did at the beginning even when it is made of paper. The person closest to doing this wins this napkin game, and may graduate to getting and using a fabric one. Either way, you are only to get one napkin. The secret is to use only one corner.
