TheWHIR Los Angeles Mixer: Networking Sure Pays Off

A few of us from DiscountASP.NET braved the rain and traveled to the west-side of Los Angeles to attend The Web Hosting Industry Review‘s (TheWhir) Los Angeles Networking event at the Air Conditioned Supper Club on the evening of Jan. 21, 2010.  TheWhir started these networking events in different cities last year and they have been growing in support and in attendance. I think these regional networking events for the hosting industry are a great idea and I support this program. Even with the rain, the turnout was good. (I tried taking some pictures but it was too dark for my phone.)

As usual at these events, they had giveaways. I don’t know, but DiscountASP.NET must be in the zone at these events or somehow the design, make, or cardstock weight of our business cards must give us some edge – because Mark Medina (Marketing, Director) won a $100 Amazon gift certificate courtesy of Enom. This is the second time he’s won at a TheWhir mixer – the first time was last year at the San Francisco mixer where he won an Apple TV.

And I won a bottle of wine at the last TheWhir Los Angeles mixer in June 2009 and this time around, I walked out with another bottle of wine courtesy of AutomaticSiteMap.

So I have to say again…networking does pay off!
