Small and medium sized businesses pre-Christmas drinks reception



This was the first event jointly organised by the Dutch  Embassy and the NBCC, but hopefully not the last! Hosted at the beautiful and historic Netherlands Embassy building on Hyde Park Gate, around 50 attendees and guests from small and medium businesses enjoyed an excellent evening of wine, conversation and networking.  

We were formally welcomed to the event by Fred Olthof, Head of the Economics Department of the Dutch Embassy. He remarked on how pleased he was to be hosting this inaugural function together with the NBCC, and hoped that this would be the first of many such events.  Anton Valk, NBCC’s chairman introduced us to the UK-based NBCC team and talked about the rapidly growing social and business events programme the NBCC are organising.

With the formalities over, everyone got down to the serious business of chatting, drinking and enjoying a constant stream of delicious hot and cold canapés’ (or hapjes as we know them in Dutch!). The conversation flowed and many new business contacts were made. The event was definitely enjoyed by all those who attended and a great opportunity to demonstrate the close working relationship between the Dutch Embassy and the NBCC.
