CIAC NETWORKING DRINKS

On Monday 17th November the Spanish Chamber of Commerce took part in the Council of Ibero American Chambers in the UK (CIAC) Networking Drinks that was held at the Melia White House hotel, member of our Chamber.

This event was the second organised by the CIAC after the successful launch in March 2014. On this informal gathering attendees had the opportunity to network with representatives from member companies of the different Chambers that belong to the CIAC.

The members of the different companies that belong to the CIAC organisations had an excellent opportunity to meet fellow colleagues from other countries.

During the evening, one of the members of our Executive Committe gave a short speech to thank guests for their support and to highlight the importance of creating a solid professional network to support business with commercial interests and links in the UK, Spain and Latin America. Afterwards, he gave the floor to Cristina Zaragoza, from Meliá White House, who announced the prize draw: an afternoon tea for two people. The lucky winner was Ben Stern from Surrey Satellite Technology.
