Local Businesses Showcase Themselves Into Success at Southern California Mega Networking Mixer and Expo

ORANGE COUNTY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 19, 2007 -- Combining the business networking power of 28 Orange County chambers of commerce and business organizations, Orange County's Largest Mixer IV will take center stage at the Orange County Fair and Exposition Center in Costa Mesa, Thursday, March 8, 2007 from 5 to 9 p.m.

"As an international company based in Southern California, Orange County's Largest Mixer is the perfect opportunity to gain credibility and phenomenal exposure," said Keith Froehling of Keith Froehling International. "The Orange County Mixer is 'the' place for anyone and everyone ready to meet thousands of new leads ready to take that first step to becoming your customer."

A $15 admission fee gives attendees 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.

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. Last year, over 2300 business people came together for this ultimate networking event.

"In the business world, we need to constantly focus on expanding our network of contacts. It's about obtaining information and making contacts that can help us in our day-to-day business life," said Patricia McMaster, President, National Latina Business Women Association-OC. "It's an essential tool in our professional life. Networking is also about passing it on; helping others as they, too, strive to get ahead in the business world."

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

"Building relationships through networking drives business. At HSBC, the world's local bank, we have strong relationships with our clients and value the networking opportunities which help to grow both our clients' business and our own," said Jim Cronin, New Markets Marketing Communications, HSBC. "That's why we are participating at Orange County's Largest Mixer."
