HBN year-closing message and season’s greetings

2019: another year of great HBN events

We started the year with the New Year's Business Reception which we stage annually together with the Embassy of Hungary. Shortly after that, we organised a great event for the senses. In our Wine & Choco workshop guests had the opportunity to taste wonderful Hungarian wines and chocolate and learn how to make perfect matches of these two delights. In the summer we hosted the second edition of Secret of Success in Amsterdam, welcoming over 50 Hungarian professionals. Together with five top speakers from the Dutch corporate, academics, entrepreneur and sports life, we explored the ingredients that help Hungarians build a successful career in Holland.


A new initiatives we launched this year - along with private membership - is our Updates series. In short, engaging interviews our corporate and private members talk about their business and career sharing their important learnings and experiences. Our Updates are featured on the HBN website and social media channels.


Inspiration for the new year

We will continue arranging great HBN activities for you in 2019. Here are some of the highlights.

  • In January, we will be welcoming our members at the traditional HBN New Year's Business Reception, an exclusive networking opportunity hosted together with the Embassy of Hungary.


  • Before the summer, we will be back with the third edition of Secret of Success, to further discuss what makes Hungarian professionals successful in Holland.


  • On our plans we also have an interesting event about scale-up businesses with Dutch and Hungarian scale-ups sharing their experience during their intensive growth period.


  • To close the year on a high note, we are planning an event where we taste Hungarian wine and delicacies while explore the best ways to market these in Holland and beyond.
