On October 6, AmCham Estonia held its Member Dinner 2021. AmCham members gathered together in the beautiful Hilton Tallinn Park Hotel for the traditional dinner.
The event began with the opening by Mr. Indrek Laul, who highlighted all our Premium Partners and Charter Gold Members, and also all the new members that have joined us during the year: 3 Step IT, AstraZeneca, Fiizy, Placent Activ Milano, Admiral Markets and Fermi Energia.
His welcome remarks were followed by Mr. Brian Roraff, who spoke about US and Estonian relationships, the travel ban removal between the US and Europe that was recently announced. He also mentioned the importance of collaboration between AmCham Estonia and US Embassy. He covered many other topics in his speech, such as tax issues, transatlantic relationships, and climate change.
Another highlight of the speaker program was a special video message from Ms. Susan Danger, CEO of AmCham EU and Chairwoman of the AmChams in Europe Association.
Our event keynote speaker this year was Ms. Yoko Alender, Member of the Estonian Reform Party, Chairwoman of the Environment Committee. In her speech, she talked about climate change, green issues, and rising electricity prices. She spoke about the new trends and our future- less traveling, using more public transport, focusing on our health, and showing the example for our kids and upcoming generation. Her passionate speech let to a very interesting and interactive Q&A session where our members had a chance to address their questions.
The official part was followed by a live music performance by Sandra Hiie, while members had time for networking and to enjoy their dinner and wine.
We want to thank Hilton Tallinn Park for the great food and service, also all the speakers who agreed to join our annual event and give their time. We also want to thank PRIKE for sponsoring our welcome drinks. Next year, AmCham Estonia will be celebrating its 25th birthday and we look forward to seeing many of you at this annual event for a big celebration!
