The mission of the Ireland Netherlands Business Association (INBA) is to facilitate business networking between member companies and individuals in the Dutch and Irish business communities.
" The INBA works closely with Irish state agencies and the broader Dutch and Irish business communities in the Netherlands. Its membership spans the business spectrum from international public companies to small and medium sized companies and semi-state organisations. The association, established in 1991, is non-profit and is funded on a voluntary basis.
We celebrated our St. Patrick's Day Dinner on March 14th in spectacular style. With over 120 guests - a record attendance for INBA - there was a great networking buzz throughout the evening. Guests were entertained from the reception through to the end of the night by traditional music from the David Munnelly Band (David Munnelly, Siard de Jong and Dominic Crosbie). Speaker Professor Eamonn Walsh treated the audience to a lively look at the factors impacting on economic growth prospects both in Ireland and The Netherlands over the coming years. Food for the evening was based on Irish lamb and seafood and thanks to Bord Bia and Enterprise Ireland there was shamrock for everyone. See here for some photographs of the evening.
