Opportunities abound at business meeting
Businesses, artists and more invited to information meeting on Congrés Mondial acadian 2019
Island businesses, artists and crafters are invited to a bilingual information meeting that will provide insight on business opportunities that may arise from the Congrés Mondial acadian (CMA) which is set to take place on the Island later this year. The Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of P.E.I. will host this meeting to encourage businesses and vendors to prepare themselves for the arrival of hundreds of visitors attending CMA 2018.
The event will take place in eight Island municipalities from Aug. 10 to 24.
Guest speakers will discuss aspects concerning hosting such a large event including products, exterior appearance of business and municipal properties, bilingual signage, traffic impacts and more.
The majority of the meeting will be devoted discussing ways businesses, artists, and crafters (professional and amateur) can profit from this major Acadian event.
CMA officials will provide information on P.E.I. events, family reunions, tender processes for food services, handcraft booths and more.
The chamber will also speak about various sales opportunities that can be organized for small artists, artisans and vendors on the sidelines of the festivities.
Presenters will be available to answer all questions.
The meeting will be held at 9 p.m., on Jan. 24 in the conference room of Evangeline Education Centre in Abram-Village.
