Over 300 Exhibitors and 3000 Business People Join Chambers of Commerce For Largest Networking Business Mixer And Expo

Networking Event Holds True to its Name as the ‘Largest Mixer’ Continues
to be Orange County’s Best Attended Networking Event Four Years in a Row

Combining the business networking power of 29 Orange County's Largest Mixer IV took center stage at the Orange County Fair and Exposition Center in Costa Mesa, Thursday, March 8, 2007.

“We participate in so many networking events, this is definitely one of the top,” commented Brett Adolph of Payday Payroll Service of Orange. “I couldn’t even begin to count the amount of people we spoke to. This event was extremely beneficial to us.”

Attendees had the opportunity to view more than 300 exhibitors and network with thousands of local “influentials” on the cutting edge of Orange County’s business elite.

“We have just launched a new spa component to the hotel, so it was pivotal for us to be in front of so many local business people,” said Linda Beltran, Director of Public Relations for the Fairmont Hotels & Resorts in Newport Beach. “Orange County’s Largest Mixer was an effective tool to achieve our desired goal. We met so many new contacts and qualified leads. We can’t wait for next year!”

Now in its 4th successful year, the Mixer has grown to represent a powerful meeting of Orange County area chambers of commerce and local businesses representing hundreds of industries and companies in Southern California.

“We didn’t want to be left out in the cold this year,” said Michael Carcano of Carcano DJ Audio Visual & Lighting of Lake Forest. “You couldn’t really beat the price to exhibit. It was reasonable for what you get. And I was able to look on the website, and see that there are quality businesses attending.”

Designed to be part expo and part business social event, Orange County’s Largest Mixer
accomplished both by providing an “open feel” for the exhibitor’s area. There were no strict space rules, booth sizes were designated and conversational areas existed for casual one-on-one discussions with new business contacts.

“This was the most fun and effective networking opportunity I have been a part of,” remarked Donna Hisey of Tropical Smoothie CafĂ© in Irvine. “It was a positive atmosphere for those who attend. I encourage other businesses to be part of it.”
