Founded by a few Orange County Professionals in 2010, ConnectOC was devised as a portal of event hosting for authentic Orange County Networking.
The mission of ConnectOC is to use social media to connect, socialize, network and contribute in meaningful ways to each other, the Orange County community as well as the local economy.
In 2010, the group held two events at Hilton Costa Mesa which brought together hundreds of Orange County professionals and businesses for networking events that were free – yet helped raise thousands of dollars for nonprofits.
In 2011 and 2012, casual holiday get-togethers helped close out the year.
It’s been a while since the last event, but they’ve partnered with Marquee Costa Mesa (located at Harbor and Adams in Costa Mesa) for an exciting fall event.
The restaurants at the newly-rebranded Costa Mesa shopping center will be providing a variety of food samples to guests.
The event will be located primarily in the northwest corner of the center, in the former location of the Paul Mitchell salon, a wide-open space perfect for mingling!
Beer and wine will be available for purchase from Haus of Pizza.
As usual, this event is completely free. Guests are encouraged to bring business cards and come hungry!
Guests are encouraged to use and follow the #ConnectOC hashtag on social media.
