IBFA - History

IBFA, the International Business Foundation Amsterdam, was founded in 2001 by a group of business people and local government representatives  to bring together senior executives of international corporations with offices in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area.

Since then, through its interactive meetings, IBFA has established itself as a leading platform for the region’s international business community. 

Our goals are:

- to provide its members with an attractive and informal meeting  venue

- to help communicate the views of international business to local and central government

IBFA - Today

IBFA connects the international business community in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area primarily through regular lunch meetings for senior executives.

These lunches feature a presentation of substance by a prominent business person, politician or diplomat, whilst also providing the guests ample opportunity for meeting one another.

Admittance to the lunches is by invitation only. Average attendance, 60 executives.

Venue: De Beurs van Berlage, or one of the leading hotels in Amsterdam.                      Timing: 12:00-14:00.
