I look forward to meeting you.

Why is it wrong to use "meet" in the place of "meeting"?

with thanks

Because this is not a to + infinitive

I want to meet you.
I would like to meet you.

It is a preposition + noun or participle

I look forward to your visit
I look forward to the party
I look forward to meeting you
