On October 1st, 2015, a business networking event presented by Développement Économique West‐Island (DEWI), was held at the Complexe Dôme Multi‐Sports Volkswagen Des Sources in Baie‐D’Urfé. Close to 200 guests participated in this special event that brought together clients, partners, board members, mayors and municipal counsellors of West Island’s cities and boroughs, as well as several candidates in the 2015 federal elections.
“Our intention this evening was to simply thank you all. As you surely know, the CLD network has gone through profound upheaval throughout Québec and Montréal was no exception. Many of you were there to demonstrate your strong support during the last few months. It is thanks to you all that our organization is still in existence today, “said Nicolas Roy, Director General of Développement Économique West‐Island.
“We also want to highlight that this partnership now also extends to Lachine,” added Roger Morin, President of the board.
Throughout the evening where networking was the main focus, the guests had the opportunity of tasting a selection of whiskeys presented by Ouidram, to practice their golf swing on the Golf‐O‐Max simulator and appreciate live music from the band Nathan Wilson and the Bird of Prey. Certain guests also had the chance to play Sumo Soccer on the magnificent interior soccer field.
In addition to enjoying delicious entrées and succulent desserts from Non Sole Pane, amateurs of local specialty beers and ciders, offered by Brasseurs RJ and Brasserie McAuslan, got a delightful treat. Mr. Roy gave a heartfelt thanks to Mr. Philipp Schumacher, the owner of Complexe Dôme Multi‐Sports Volkswagen Des Sources, who generously offered his premises for the event. Guests wanted to know when the same type of event would be taking place, proving that the evening was a great success.
