About 100 business people attended the event, held March 25 at the Carrefour de l’Isle-Saint-Jean in Charlottetown.

They got to visit various booths (including those manned by the event hosts as well as by the Organizing Committee of the 2015 Jeux de l’Acadie Finals), discuss various subjects with other business people, hear comments from the hosts, snack on hors d’oeuvres and multicultural foods and watch a salsa-style dance.
