The port of Rotterdam was the scene of the sixth Africa Business Club meeting this year. Here, STC-Group made its location available for this gathering, where the focus lied on the development of the maritime business. More than fifty interested people, representing approximately forty different companies, heard out the interesting presentations given by Sander Wubbolts (STC) and Martin Bloem (Maritime by Holland). Their speeches about the visions, struggles, but moreover opportunities for the Dutch maritime sector in Africa were truly eye-openers for their fellow colleagues as well as for managers who are in active in other company sectors. All these downloadable presentations can be found below.

Dave Kroet, representing one of NABC’s newest members CIBT Visas, speaks so highly about his first meeting with the Business Club: “From the real welcome and the good presentations, that underlined the location and intention of the meeting, till the informal network session: it was an excellent first move to further collaboration.” The high turnout consisting of export managers, CEOs and Africa region managers is one of the main factors for a successful Business Club. “Although I missed the network session, I have already made some interesting contacts” says Dennis Steegman, commercial director at Nestinox. Therefore they both registered for the next Africa Business Club right away.
