Networking Acadian-style in Summerside
SUMMERSIDE – Nov. 25, 2016 – About 50 entrepreneurs and business people gathered at the Centre Belle-Alliance in Summerside on the evening on Nov. 24 for a social and festive business mixer organized by the Greater Summerside Chamber of Commerce. Several partners from the Island’s Acadian community hosted the Acadian-flavoured event again this year.
Business ties were developed during informal discussions and people discovered new products and services as they visited various booths. Participants also enjoyed delicious hors d’œuvres and won door prizes.
