The Murrieta/Wildomar Chamber of Commerce All Chamber Mega Mixer returns to the Spectrum in Murrieta Thursday, Jan. 16, offering another chance for the business community throughout southwest Riverside County to mix, mingle and network.

Now in its 10th year, the mixer will feature more than 125 vendors and more than 1,500 visitors to the event that is $1 to attend or get in by dropping off a business card.

Patrick Ellis, president and CEO of the chamber, said there won’t be many changes at this year’s event.

“Why reinvent the wheel? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” he said. “We’ll have new participants for sure. We’ll have a couple of vendors this year. There are always new people that come out.”

Ellis said it all depends on how businesses from the area are faring and whether they deem the event important to their business.

“It depends on if people are interested in growing their business and whether they see the advantage of having a tabletop to showcase their business,” he said. “Of course, we will have a lot of the same participants and sponsors that we have had at our other events as well.”

Ellis said they are excited about having the city of Menifee out for the event as well.

The event will take place from 3:30-7 p.m. at the Murrieta Spectrum Center located at 25125 Madison Avenue, Suite 105, in Murrieta.

There will be food samples from attending local restaurants and drinks.

“Businesses and nonprofits use this event to build their database, rekindle connections and find their next best idea to grow their business,” Ellis said during last year’s event. “The businesses that are at the Mega Mixer could be your next best client, customer, business partner, etc.”

Sponsorship spots are still available.
