The Ireland Netherlands Business Association (INBA) has been connecting Irish and Dutch business people in the Netherlands through a series of events over the past twenty five years.

The INBA works closely with Irish state agencies and the broader Dutch and Irish business communities in the Netherlands. Membership spans the business spectrum from international public companies to small and medium sized companies and semi-state organisations. We are a not for profit organisation, run by a voluntary Board, and we are grateful always for our members’ support and membership fees, which allow us to put our events together.

The Irish Ambassador to the Netherlands actively supports the Association as its Patron and the Embassy is represented on the INBA Board.

Through periodic networking events, INBA provides a useful forum for making connections between companies and individuals who are involved in business and commercial activities in both Ireland and the Netherlands, or who are engaged in trade between the countries. 
If you would like to know more about INBA, how you can join and support our activities as well as event sponsorship opportunities, contact us via info@inba.nl.
