Catering Connection’s New Headquarters Celebrated with NACE Monthly Mixer

Nace event at laguna 010While our new offices have been in place for awhile now, nothing truly warms a new space like that of friends and people you love.  And it was exactly this way at the recent NACE monthly mixer when we hosted some of the best in the events industry from Central and Southern California at our new Laguna location.

We are proud to showcase our event service “partners in crime”, menu and photos from this fantastic event (our parking lot never looked so good) below.
