The Collège Acadie Î.-P.-É., the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI (CCAFLIPE) and the Carrefour are pleased to jointly host this spring mixer for a third consecutive year.

As always, participants will get to sample a variety of delicious hors d’oeuvres. A cash bar service will also be available. Visitors will get to visit a variety of information booths, most of which will offer small promotional items as well as door prizes. Among those who’ve so far confirmed they will have booths are the hosting organizations, the Boys’ and Girls’ Club of Charlottetown, the Charlottetown Chamber and the MRSB Group (the main sponsor of all the Chamber’s business mixers).

“We consider these business mixers – or networking receptions – to be excellent opportunities for our Francophone companies and business people to come and meet Charlottetown’s Anglophone business community in a relaxed, social atmosphere,” says CCFLIPE coordinator Raymond J. Arsenault. “As well, they’re an exceptional way of promoting our organizations, our services and our facilities to the city’s Anglophone community.”

Usually, the business mixer attracts 100-125 influential business people. The mixer is laid out in the cafeteria as well as in the adjoining Bayou 1, 2 and 3 rooms. Admission is free.

Those who would like to rent a booth space are asked to contact Nicole Soucy from the Charlottetown Chamber at 902-628-2000.
