British-Polish Chamber of Commerce is becoming more and more active in the regions and organises activities at the sites of its members across south of Poland.

This time we organised After Summer Business Cocktail in Gliwice in partnership with Rödl & Partner who owns large modern space specially designed for business activities.

The event took place on the 4th of September gathering both clients of Rödl & Partner and BPCC members located in Upper Silesia. The guests were greeted by Urszula Kwaśniewska, Regional Director of BPCC who thanked Rödl & Partner for being an active member of BPCC ever since launching its operations in Poland back in the 90`s. Then spoke Ms. Liliane Preusser, Partner at Rödl & Partner who said that organising joint business cocktails should become a good tradition from now on.

Then was the time for tasting good wines specially selected for the event by Winebar Lofty. A professional sommelier provided us with the background of knowledge about different wines, its colours and countries of origin. The selection was combined of wines from Old and New World and the guests had the opportunity to compare them.

The evening was also and opportunity to talk to companies located in Gliwice and nearby about their needs and specificity of activities. Many have asked about the Brexit and its impact on trade exchange in Europe. The BPCC will be in touch with businesses with the update on British-Polish relations.
