AACCI Victoria Annual Meet Share Connect Networking Event

AACCI Victoria was delighted to host the popular annual networking event – Meet, Share and Connect. The event attracted over 120 attendees, among them Victorian exhibitors at Gulfood 2018 and exporters from different industry sectors to the MENA region. The event was highly successful and included the newly appointed Consul General of The Sultanate of Oman, HE Dr Hamood Al-Wardi; Consul General of the UAE, HE Saeed Al Qamzi, sponsors, stakeholders, members and business executives.

The event highlighted AACCI’s upcoming and ongoing activities including a VIP FDI Dubai Government Delegation to Melbourne in June 2018, Trade Missions to the MENA region in March 2018 and upcoming workshops and seminars to support members’ success in their export activities and business development in the MENA region. The event highlighted the connection between Australian trade and diplomatic links with the Middle East and the need for facilitating such networking opportunities.

The Meet Share and Connect event was only one of many events AACCI Victoria will hold in 2018.
