The ABCC's events team has been busy of late with two successful nights held earlier in September on either side of the country. On September 6 the Brisbane team of Rodrigo de Luca, Val Noleto and Anna White hosted a special Brazil Independence Day dinner "A Night in Brazil", while just a week later on September 14 ABCC President Rob Grant, now based in Perth, joined with WA Director Simon Tarmo for a multi-chamber sundowner. Both nights were very well attended and mark a return to more frequent live events for the Chamber as opportunities for networking begin to resume around the country. Visit the ABCC events page for a selection of images from the events.
This new event (starting 5pm, Tuesday 14/9 in the offices of Squire Patton Boggs on level 21, 300 Murray St) is being hosted by the ABCC's WA chapter and will feature speeches from several South American professionals currently living in Perth, with many more in attendance. Organised in partnership with the Argentine Chamber of Commerce in Australia (ArCham) and Australia Peru Chamber of Commerce (APCCI), the unique gathering will bring together members and guests from all three chambers. See our events page HERE for full details.
