Aldens Kennels to host annual Multi-State Mixer

MultiChamberMixer_2017

Aldens Kennels is a place where people bring their cats and dogs for boarding – where they bring their dogs for training. But, from 5 to 7 p.m., Tuesday, June 6, the kennel is almost magically transformed into one of the most significant business networking mixer, if not the biggest, in the Midwest – it’s fourth annual Multi-State Mixer. The sleepy little village of Ringwood – Aldens Kennels is at 6810 Barnard Mill Road, in Ringwood – will see a dramatic influx of visitors as nearly 500 are expected to attend the event.

The purpose of a business networking mixer is to offer business owners an opportunity to mingle with other business owners. They have a chance to make new connections, refresh existing relationships and share tips about improving the operation of their businesses. The event at Aldens – the Multi-State Mixer – will also include food, beverages and prizes.

Participating chambers of commerce and other organizations include nine chambers and three visitor bureaus. The event is open to business owners or those who are starting a business.

Most mixers offer prizes – one or two. That’s not the case at the Multi-State Mixer. Here are the prizes, so far:

  • HalfTime Pizza – 3 certificates for 14″ pizza
