On June 15, 2022, the Swiss Canadian Chamber of Commerce and the Consul General of Switzerland, Andreas Rufer, welcomed the members of the Swiss Canadian Chamber of Commerce and guests to the annual and highly anticipated Summer Night Reception at the beautiful Residence of the Swiss Confederation in West Vancouver. It was great seeing many old and new faces of the SCCC coming together and having a great time.
Whether one can speak of a Summer Night Reception this year with cool and wet weather is up for debate, however, what is out of question is the fact that it was a fantastic evening, with great people and delicious food. The evening started with a welcome-drink which was followed by a warm welcome speech by the Consul General, Andreas Rufer, and SCCC President, Fabian Lemann. The attendees were introduced to the current SCCC Board and invited to reflect on what is currently happening in the world and the economy and how the SCCC can help and support its members during that time. Following this official part, the buffet was opened and the participants could enjoy a rich salad buffet, sausages from the grill and Swiss specialties like Älpler Makkaroni, and Rösti from the grill. This created a real summer feeling and especially the Swiss specialties were much appreciated by the attendees.
It was wonderful to see so many SCCC members at the Summer Night Reception and to spend a nice evening together. From new members to long-time members everyone was present and enjoyed networking and exchanging ideas.
We would like to thank everyone for attending the Summer Night Reception and all our members for their support. A special thank you goes to Andreas Rufer, for welcoming the SCCC at the Residence of the Swiss Confederation and to Fabia Ayoubi, Vice President of the SCCC and Nina Hofmann, SCCC Marketing Coordinator, for co-organizing the event.
We are already looking forward to next year’s Summer Night Reception!
