Following the AGM you are invited to attend two guest lectures; the first by Mr. Edo de Ronde of Rotterdam Partners and the second by Mr. Hans Poulis, Chairman of the Netherlands Hong Kong Business Association, and a cocktail reception offered by the NHKBA.

About the Speakers:
Rotterdam Partners is responsible for the city marketing, acquisition marketing and helping with the development of a better business climate. The agency promotes the Rotterdam region nationally and internationally.
Mr. Edo de Ronde of Rotterdam Partners will talk about how they changed the international image of Rotterdam so that today it is recognised as one of the “must visit” places in the world. A place that draws admirers of modern architecture as well as organisers of conferences, international companies and students. A story of an ugly duckling that turned into a glorious swan.
Mr. Hans Poulis is CEO of IGC International, Chairman of the NHKBA and, since December 2018, Vice-Chairman of the Federation of Hong Kong Business Associations Worldwide. He will speak about the new direction of the Federation in Europe and around the world and how the Netherlands Hong Kong Business Association can and will be a part of this new direction.
The presentations will be followed by a cocktail reception in Brasserie “Schielandshuis” on the ground floor.
