Dear Members,

We have a very exciting period ahead us. On Thursday 26May, we will be organising the 2016 TEDxBinnenhof Viewing Party at Engineers Australia’s fantastic new state-of-the-art offices.

This edition’s theme – Ideas from Europe – will see many of our fellow European Chambers participate and it promises to be an outstanding evening of networking and celebrating European innovation. The Viewing Party will showcase three of the best TED Talks from the event in The Hague and we have two fantastic local TED Talks from Aipoly’s co-founder Alberto Rizzoli and ThunderMaps’ founder Clint van Marrewijk. The Consul-General, Willem Cosijn, will open the event and we are expecting many attendees from the other European Chambers in Melbourne, so the evening will provide you with a unique opportunity to meet and network with lots of new and familiar faces.

Through the generous support of the Victorian Multicultural Commission and the Netherlands Consulate-General, we have been able to keep this is a free event – canapés will be served and there will be a cash bar on the night to purchase drinks. So don’t wait any longer and register now.

Next to this exciting upcoming event, we would like to look back at yet another sold-out edition of the NCCA King’s Day Business Breakfast. On the 29th of April, we celebrated our national holiday at the Langham Hotel with the Victorian Multicultural Commissioner Helen Kapalos. As always, the Dutch breakfast treats were a favourite with the attendees and the commissioner outlined the importance of Victoria’s multicultural heritage and the integral role that the Dutch community plays in this.

It was great to see the enthusiasm of our Members at this signature annual event and we look forward to continuing to celebrate the long-standing relationship between our two countries as this year marks the 400th anniversary of the first Dutch contact with Australia!

As always, we hope you enjoy reading our newsletter and we look forward to seeing you at our next events.

Met vriendelijke groet!

Sander van Amelsvoort
