With Orange County’s Largest Mixer VI just weeks away, the VIP kickoff event held this past Wednesday OC Fair & Event Center’s Baja Blues restaurant served as the perfect springboard to help usher in the fast approaching Mixer.
For the 5th year in a row, the Orange County’s VIP kickoff event was held at Baja Blues, and for the 5th year in a row, the staff at Ovations (the company that handles catering at the OC Fair & Event Center) showed the staff at the Largest Mixer exactly why we keep coming back for more. The food selection that was served up was second-to-none and included a carving station, finger foods and chocolate fountain for dipping fruit.
Among the dozens of exhibitors in attendance were Moustache Mike’s Italian Ice, Poverello Coffee, Smart Levels Media Trade American Card, Orange County Resource Guide, Orange County Register, and TEAM Referral Network. Advent Visual, a proud Largest Mixer sponsor, didn’t disappoint in the decorations department when it came to the balloon columns that they set up for the event.
Right before our big grand prize (two tickets at an upcoming Dodger game in the 790 KABC suite), we were pleased to have the publisher of the Orange County Register, Terry Horne, address the attendees.
A very special to Juan Quintero and Ernie Navar of Ovations and the folks at the OC Fair & Event Center. Without their help and support, the kick-off event would truly not have been possible. On behalf of the Largest Mixer staff, you should really consider hosting one of your own events, or maybe even your company’s holiday parties there. We guarantee you that they won’t disappoint.
Now, it’s on to March 11, 2009, where Orange County’s Largest Mixer VI takes over buildings 10 and 12 at the OC Fair & Event Center, for a business networking event that Orange County will be talking about for years to come…or at least next year when we do it again!
