Networking event guests defy Storm Doris

Storm Doris may have been battering Manchester and beyond, but guests at the recent Greater Manchester Chamber Pure Networking event were not to be deterred from enjoying a fantastic evening of networking, conversation, great food and something just a little different besides! The friendly, informal session was organised to allow business of all sizes and sectors to come together. Grape and Grain provided delicious refreshments whilst special guests Breakout Manchester gave an insight into their popular escape room game format. The Chamber Space was an ideal venue for the occasion, with guests able to network in the panelled Boardroom, enjoy refreshments in the Members’ Lounge and take advantage of the smaller meeting rooms for individual conversations.

Canadian High Commissioner visits the Chamber Space Meeting Rooms

On Tuesday, the Chamber Space Meeting Rooms played host to a unique event bringing together the worlds of international trade and international sport with a Canadian theme.

Canadian High Commissioner, Her Excellency Janice Charette, on her first visit to the city gave the 80 attendees an open, honest and at times candid talk on the size and importance of the respective UK and Canadian markets and the challenges that lie ahead following the vote to leave the EU.

In her speech she highlighted the recent CETA deal between Canada and the EU, hailing it as a “gold standard” of what trade deals should consist of with a small hint to the government about what the UK’s future trade deals should consist of. She acknowledged there would obviously have to be allowances made taking into account the UK’s position with the EU. Notwithstanding some obvious hurdles and ongoing uncertainty about Brexit, the message was clear about Canada being very much open for business with the UK.

Following the High Commissioner, rugby league legend Brian Noble gave an overview on progress being made with the Toronto Wolfpack – Canada’s first professional rugby league side, who are due to start playing in the third tier of the sport in the UK in March. With home and away games meaning flights across the Atlantic being commonplace, this also opens up opportunities to link with local businesses to develop new trade links with Canada on the back of a unique sporting opportunity.

The Chamber will be developing links through the Wolfpack and the High Commissioner to ensure that the opportunities discussed at the meeting become a way of doing business in the future with what is an important and developing market.
