On Monday 14th January the Spanish Chamber of Commerce opened the 2013 calendar with one of its most popular corporate events: the New Year Drinks Reception, that was held at The May Fair Hotel, part of Radisson Blu Edwardian, Patron of the Chamber.
The event brought together many representatives from a wide range of British and Spanish companies by giving them the chance to celebrate the start of a promising 2013 together. Attendees enjoyed a delightful evening accompanied by some great canapés from the Quince Restaurant at The May Fair Hotel and the finest wines and cava provided by C&D Wines, member of the Chamber, and Bodegas Muga.
Speeches kicked off with Mr. Javier Fernández, President of the Spanish Chamber of Commerce, who talked about the challenges currently faced by Spain, but also showed his enthusiasm about the Chamber´s project going forward and how the institution can help companies starting in the UK.
This year´s reception was also special because it was the formal presentation of our new Secretary General, Mr. Igor Urra, who also addressed attendees and encouraged both members and non-member companies to get to know us better and get in touch with the Chamber to explore further ways in which our institution can be of assistance to them.
In addition to this he mentioned the growing number of non-member companies that over the past few months have actively taken part in some of our activities, which increases the professional network to which our members have access.
The ambience was the perfect setting for the attendees from our member and Patron companies, and all guests had a good time in a friendly atmosphere, networking and sharing their projects and resolutions for the year that has just begun
We would like to thank all of our guests, members and Patrons for joining us in what was a truly enjoyable and successful event. Special thanks to our wine sponsor C&D Wines and Bodegas Muga for kindly providing the wines and cava for the evening.
More pictures of the event will be soon available. In the meantime, if you attended the evening do let us know how it went by leaving a comment. We’d love to hear back from you!
