Last 21st January the Spanish Chamber of Commerce celebrated the NEW YEAR’S DRINKS RECEPTION, our first corporate event of 2015 and the opening of a new exciting year full of activities. We had the pleasure to host this event at the main ballroom of the Four Seasons Hotel at Park Lane, member of the Chamber, a perfect setting which contributed to create a delightful atmosphere on this special occasion.
It was a very successful event as almost 250 representatives from Spanish and British companies joined us on the evening. They enjoyed the opportunity to greet the New Year and catch up with other fellow colleagues and also meet new people while developing their networking skills.
The event began at 6.30pm and all our guests were welcomed with a glass of wine and cava and were escorted to the resplendent ballroom.
Later on, the President of the Spanish Chamber, Mr. Javier Fernández Hidalgo, gave his traditional speech, greeting our guests on behalf of the institution, thanking all members for their continuous support towards the Chamber year after year, and wishing that 2015 will be a very fruitful year for the Anglo-Spanish business community.
Furthermore, thanks to our member Spanish Ham Master, we had a first-class experience tasting an incredible 9 kg. Iberian ham cut by the renown Spanish Ham Master, Mr. José Sol. He beat his personal record of cutting such a big ham in only 2 hours, which also showed the warm welcome our guests gave to this gastronomic delight.
Likewise, we would like to express our gratitude to Codorníu, for their support and contribution to make this evening a great gathering by kindly sponsoring our reception with their finest wine and cava. These refreshing and carefully elaborated beverages perfectly matched with the innovative catering prepared by the kitchen of the Four Seasons Hotel that reflected a soft taste of Asian influences.
