    1. I would use this in speech or perhaps in closing a written communication:

    Looking forward to meeting you,
    Bob


    but it is not a complete sentence, and should be considered informal.

    2. This is a complete and grammatical sentence. However, it sounds strange because "Look" here is the imperative, as in "[you will] Look forward to meeting you."
