Orange County's Best Attended Business Networking Event of It's Kind

The 7th annual Orange County's Largest Mixer® drew over 3,200 participants in what many consider the most well attended networking event in the region. Over 320 businesses exhibited in various industries ranging from finance to hospitality, education to media. The event was held March 24, 2010 at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, California.

“This is my sixth year participating in OC’s Largest Mixer®. We just love this event. It gives us an opportunity to get out and help change perceptions and what they think they know about Goodwill,” commented Doug Wooley of Goodwill. “We'll just keep coming back because we're big supporters and we really believe in what the Largest Mixer® does.”

Each year, the Mixer hopes to help encourage membership in one or several chambers of commerce, allowing a synergistic partnership to be created. Businesses are then able to extend their networks, foster new relationships, and boost their client base.

“We get a ton of people interested in membership at the Irvine Chamber because we do so much integration and networking. We probably obtained 20 to 25 new members, from being a part of the Largest Mixer®,” said Kim Sherman of the Irvine Chamber of Commerce. “We had hundreds of people that stopped by our booth here at the Mixer.”

Congratulations to the three winners of our business card draw: William Schultz of Madison & Co. won a two night stay at The Avi Resort & Casino. Rosalie Gonzales won a one night stay in a luxurious Marina View room at the Inn at Playa del Rey, and Misty White won court-side tickets to see the Los Angeles Clippers. Congratulations!
