What if I’m not a member of a participating User Group?
May I bring a friend?
What if I don’t know anyone there?
The event is designed to introduce people to each other. Everyone wears the technologies they use on their shirts (literally), and if all else fails, come find a March Mingle organizer and introduce yourself!
What if I am under the age of 21?
The venue we have allows for patrons of all ages. Please note this a private event so we will be carding at the door. At our discretion we will either issue wrist bands for those over 21 or under depending on final RSVP count.
What does this cost?
$10.00 + eventbrite fees. In the past we were able to provide this event for free, but sponsor money has been reduced dramatically. There will be snacks and appetizers provided for your ticket cost but alcoholic drinks aren’t free.
May I solicit business at this event?
This is first and foremost a social event. You are free to introduce yourself to anyone and talk about what you do for a living. However, unless you are a sponsor, we ask that attendees refrain from bringing handout materials or aggressively soliciting business at the event.
May I provide a Door Prize?
Unless you are a sponsor, no. In past March Mingle events we had so many door prizes that it took a full 40 minutes just to give them away. This year we are limiting the quantity of door prizes by only allowing sponsors to provide prizes.
Who’s behind March Mingle?
A few of us in the SD Tech Scene have decided to pick up where the original founder of March Mingle left off. Cameron Childress originally created March Mingle and ran the event for 5 years. Cameron has since left San Diego for Atlanta and has allowed us Phelan Riessen, June Clarke, and Jen Newell to run with March Mingle.
