On Tuesday night this week senior leaders of Chamber Member companies had an opportunity to experience the largest targeted senior Business Networking event in Kyiv – the 2012 Chamber Annual Members Appreciation Reception which ushered in a year where the Chamber will celebrate our 20 Year Anniversary. The American Chamber of Commerce was excited to invite key business leaders as well as the diplomatic community to once again express sincere gratitude for working, growing and developing hand in hand and making Chamber the number one business association in Ukraine.
This year the Annual Members Appreciation Reception was hosted by the InterContinental Kyiv. The hotel's Grand Ballroom opened its doors to over 500 people bringing together many key decision makers in both business and diplomatic communities. While engaging in high level Business Networking guests had plenty of opportunities to meet new people as well as chat about the upcoming year with business partners and friends.
he official part of the event included brief welcome remarks from the Chamber's President Jorge Zukoski and a new video that highlighted Chamber Membership benefits as well as key achievements of 2011. Delicious food from the InterContinental Chef and refreshing drinks from Carlsberg, Coca-Cola and METRO Cash & Carry helped to create a nice atmosphere.
On their way home COIs had an opportunity to receive their new personalized 2012 Chamber Membership Card as well as a copy of the hot off the press 2012 Chamber Membership Directory & Country Profile.
Thank you to all who attended the Reception and to all of our Members, friends and partners for all of the time, effort and resources that have been expended over the years to build a Chamber that we can all be proud of. Your support and confidence have enabled the Chamber to be effective in providing benefits and services that are important for the international business community. We look forward to working with you in 2012 and beyond!
