we did this at some previous debconf (i forget which one) by having
participants grab two playing cards upon entering the keysigning -- one
with a red back and one with a blue back.

the first split was everyone gathering with their neighbors who had the
same value on the red-backed card.  (all "red-backed 4"s gather together
over here…)  then after ~ 15 minutes, we used the blue-backed cards.

if you can find four decks of cards, two with red backs and 4 with blue
backs, then this will work for up to 104 people, with each subgroup
being 1/13th of the size of the overall group.
