After a very long and difficult time away during the pandemic, members and friends were excited to finally be reunited with one another. Over the past 11 years, Russian American Chamber of South Florida (“RAC”), has created, not only an environment where people can grow their businesses, but has brought people together who have made life-long friendships. All too often, we hear how friendships formed at a RAC event, resulting in being in each other’s wedding party, traveling on vacation and getting together for holiday gatherings. The close-knit relationships are what made the time apart during the pandemic that much harder.

By popular demand, once again, Russian American Chamber of South Florida (“RAC”) headed to downtown Fort Lauderdale for another successful business networking event at the beautiful Piazza Italia. This Italian “Town Square” concept on Las Olas Boulevard, comprised of distinct themes throughout the restaurant grounds, was the perfect spot for this amazing networking event. Bringing people together is what Russian American Chamber of South Florida does best; and this evening was no exception. A huge thank you to Piazza Italia for hosting the RAC Business Mixer.

For over one year, it has been a difficult time for many. Some businesses struggled; and some closed their doors. But many new businesses were opened as well. It’s time to get back to business and there’s no better way to do that then to attend a RAC Business Mixer! If you haven’t been to RAC Business Mixer before, you are missing out! If you own or manage a business in South Florida, RAC events are an amazing opportunity to attract new clients and gain powerful referral sources. Personal relationships are still the number one reason why people do business together.
