The European Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong (ECC) gathered more than 180 participants from over 100 companies at Shore on 10th June. This full-house cocktail party welcomed members and friends of the 15 national European Chambers of Commerce in Hong Kong.
Mr. Juha Räisänen, Chairman of the ECC warmly welcomed each and every participant for joining the cocktail party in his speech, which he described as one of the core events of the year of the ECC, uniting a global network of businesses and organisations across industries under the same roof in Hong Kong. The successful positioning of the ECC has also contributed to the organisation of seminars with leading industry experts.
He gave special thanks to the event sponsors which made this fabulous cocktail party happen, namely, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Scania and Volkswagen; WineShopAsia for the free-flow wine throughout the evening; and Concept Creations and LCN for sponsoring the lucky draw.
Mr. Jari Sinkari, Consul-General of Finland in Hong Kong and Macau was among the several participants who would take home with a little extra gift after winning the lucky draw. Native to Austria, Ms. Elisabeth Zitz, Senior Marketing Manager at KPMG has been attending the ECC cocktail parties in order to stay connected with the European community in Hong Kong and the European countries. “I have found the audience of the European Chamber cocktail party very diverse. I have been able to establish business contacts, but it is always enjoyable just catching up with familiar faces too,” she said.
With the mission to facilitate the collaboration between the European companies and the global actors and add value to Hong Kong in its societal and business diversities, the ECC is committed to achieving its mission and vision through the continuous effort in organising high-profile events and keeping the industries well informed with its business councils.
