Africa Business Club

Unlike the first announcements about gathering this time at EY, NABC is happy to join hands with Voerman International in organizing the second Africa Business Club (ABC). We consider the Business Club of March as a home match, as it will take place in the Hague.

Voerman International distinguish itself by "hands-on"-business, which you will experience during the Business Club: i.e. less presentations and speeches, but more to see and to do! 

This time we will not focus on one singular theme, but NABC will interview Voerman International in order to reveal all their features regarding doing business in Africa, such as their naming, branding and finding a local partner. You can submit here a question for Voerman International beforehand!

You can register now through the registration page until the end of Monday March. Please note that this is the last possibillity to register by sending an email to
