I would like to say "I think I'll meet lots of people". Would I use "Creo que conoceré muchas personas"? If it is then how is that then different from saying "I think I'll know lots of people"?

Or would I use "Creo que me encontraré muchas personas" or something else?

In Spanish, there's a difference between meeting new people, encountering someone by chance, deliberately searching for someone, and have a planned meeting.

I'm going to meet lots of new people (for the first time). Voy a conocer a muchas personas.

I encountered (met) an old friend today (by chance). Hoy me encontré con un viejo amigo

I found my friend at his house (deliberate search). Hallé a mi amigo a su casa.

I met my friend at a restaurant (planned meeting). Me reuní con mi amigo a un restaurante

I not so sure that the one with encontrar doesn't mean " run across" or "bump into" a lot of people.

I think conocer covers both contexts: to be introduced to many people and to become familiar (get to know) many people.

When you meet someone for the first time use conocer

"conociere" o "encontrare" -You're supposed to use a future subjunctive verb form in your sentence.
