On the evening of January 12th, over 120 people made their way down to the Fleetwood Lounge located in the heart of Downtown's Gaslamp District for your BBB’s first bi-monthly mixer of 2012. The cool and contemporary design of the Fleetwood Lounge as well as the warm San Diego sunset shaped the mood for an enjoyable night of business networking for some of San Diego’s top business professionals.
Thanks to the support of this year’s Mixer Program Underwriters; Aflac and Modern Postcard your San Diego BBB B2B Mixers are free of charge for all of our accredited business with an optional donation to the BBB Foundation Program. For non-accredited business there is a small fee of $25. Be sure to visit with Aflac and Modern Postcard during one of our next mixers to find out how they can help you and your business!
B2B Mixers gives business professionals the opportunity to socialize and network with prominent business people from all over San Diego and Imperial Counties. Like always, we encourage everyone to attend and give all companies, accredited and non-accredited alike, a chance to network with the professionals that surround them.
If you are currently a non-accredited company, you have the opportunity to learn about the benefits of accreditation from business owners who personally profit from the advantages your BBB has provided them. The majority of our guests at our bi-monthly mixers are accredited, so you are sure to meet representatives from businesses with our seal of approval. Accredited Business members can be distinguished at our B2B mixers by having the BBB logo on their nametag.
Why should you attend B2B Mixers? These events are an excellent opportunity for your company to take an active and tangible role in the community. When you get out into the community and meet people you will boost your reputation and even gather new leads. Plus, that face-to-face personal connection could make the difference between you and your competitor.
Overall the first bi-monthly mixer of 2012, at the Fleetwood Lounge was a huge success, to say the least, linking top business professionals and hopefully helped to build long lasting relationships.
