Nikolaus Cocktails 2017

12.12.17 AHK News

The German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industries (GPCCI) held its annual Nikolaus Cocktails last December 6, 2017 at the German Club Manila. Members were treated to a sumptuous dinner and free-flowing drinks as GPPCI celebrated the holidays and thanked its members for their endless support throughout the year 2017.

GPCCI President and Managing Director of TÜV Rheinland Philippines, Mr. Tristan Arwen “Bobbit” Loveres highlighted the active role of the Chamber in upholding its commitment in representing and promoting Philippine and German businesses. Dialogues with notable government figures here in the Philippines and abroad became an avenue for members to present their business interests. Networks were also established through various events organized by the Chamber and in-partnership with the British, Dutch, French, Italian, Nordic, and Spanish Chambers, the 4th Speed Networking Night and the 3rd Joint Economic Briefing to name a few. Considered as its trademark event, the Mabuhay Germany was elevated to include a job fair, for the first time, among the promotion of German businesses, culture, cuisines, and camaraderie. Noteworthy is the record-breaking number of 106 players who participated in the 15th German Ambassador’s Cup. This event marks the Chamber’s tradition of combining work and play and public and private sectors while supporting a chosen beneficiary. Moreover, two batches of Metal Working Technology students graduated from the Dual-Training Program of the Chamber together with our member MHE Demag. Lastly, the AHK certification of different companies’ dual training system were achieved.

The attendees were also in for an exciting chance to win various raffle prizes, generously provided by Pacific Cross, Novotel Manila Araneta Center, Werdenberg Internatinal Corporation (Säntis Delicatessen), and Etihad Airways. The night progressed full of cheers and laughter reflecting the successful year which the Chamber hopes to continue over to the next.

GPCCI would like to extend its gratitude to our event sponsor, BDO; minor sponsor, Pacific Cross; raffle sponsors, Etihad Airways, Novotel Hotels and Resorts, and Werdenberg Internatinal Corporation (Säntis Delicatessen), and beverage Sponsor, Paulaner.

We would also like to thank all of our members for their continuous trust and support that made this event and the year a true success. Happy holidays!
