Loading Events
  • This event has passed.

You are invited to join our monthly friendly and informal networking and discussion evenings –


This time the topic will be Argentina where a very big Irish diaspora live. Irish emigrants from the Midlands, Wexford and many counties of Ireland arrived in Argentina mainly from 1830 to 1930, with the largest wave taking place in 1850–1870. The modern Irish-Argentine community is composed of some of their descendants, and the total number is estimated at 500,000–1,000,000. Argentina is the home of the fifth largest Irish community in the world.

We will have an opportunity to enjoy the first warm days a wonderful venue just on the banks of the river Daugava – Riga Sunset Lounge.

The guest speaker – Mr Claudio Rivera who lives in Latvia and is the Lead of Education Working Group of FICIL and Associate Professor and BBA Director of Riga Business School.

101 CONTACTS series offers a forum for ILCC members to make new contacts and broaden their professional networks in an informal setting. We encourage members to make new contacts and to introduce their existing networks to Chamber members.

The goal of each event is for attendees to leave with at least 3 new professional connections.

Bring yourself (and a colleague), a positive outlook and your business cards. There will be a drink on arrival for guests and lots of opportunity! During the evening networkers will be able to taste Argentinian food and wine.
