CHARLOTTETOWN – Oct. 11, 2013 – More than 125 people, including several representatives of RDÉE Prince Edward Island and its Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI (CCAFLIPE), attended the October business mixer hosted by the Greater Charlottetown Chamber of Commerce Oct. 10 at UPEI.
Attendees were able to visit information booths to learn more about various programs, businesses and services, including those offered by the Acadian Chamber.
These mixers are excellent opportunities for members of the Charlottetown Chamber to know each other better, establish new contacts and set up business meetings.
