More than 60 Dutch entrepreneurs attended the recent Road2UK event held in the Willem II football stadium in Tilburg, The Netherlands. The event, organised by the Dutch Enterprise Agency RVO in conjunction with the NBCC and the Dutch local Chambers of Commerce, gave the participants a superb overview of the current UK economic situation provided by ING Bank as well as insights in market opportunities and cultural differences. The Road2UK also offered a possibility to share the experiences of several successful Dutch exporters to the UK, including speakers from NBCC member companies Dual Inventive, Roots for Safety and Berkvens BV.
While the questions of several of the guests to the panel of specialists confirmed that there is a lot of uncertainty around the forthcoming Brexit, it was positive that many of the companies are eager to intensify their commercial activities in the UK in the years to come.
A well attended and lively networking drinks reception completed the event. The various presentations delivered at the Road2UK by the high calibre speakers can be accessed and downloaded by NBCC members in the log-in area of the NBCC website.
