  10. 10. Sattelite events 9On the occasion of each Business Days edition, we also organize various satellite events either for entertainment purposes or in orderto diversify the opportunities for networking and interaction among participants, speakers and partners. Gala evenings are special events that usually mark the end of the editions and are dedicated to our speakers and partners, as a means of showing our gratitude for their involvement and support. These events often have a strong social dimension; for instance, the gala evening that we organized on September 30, 2011 at Brasov had the secondary purpose of raising funds for an exceptional sports person - Crina Coco Popescu. We managed to help Crina in her attempt of conquering the highest mountain peak in the world and thus setting a new worldwide record, despite being only 16 years old.In September 2011, at Brasov, for the first time in the history of theBusiness Days events, we replaced the traditional Business Lunch with anunprecedented Culinary Art Competition that was truly appreciatedby our participants. Thus, they had the opportunity to act as a jury and tastecooking samples from 7 contestants – renowned cateringcompanies and restaurants from Brasov. The contest wasorganized in partnership and with the support of the National Association ofChefs and Confectioners of Tourism, represented by their Vice President - thefamous master-chef Cornelia Ghisoi.
