About the AABC

The Amsterdam American Business Club is a professional networking organization whose main purpose is to help improve business contacts between Dutch and American companies in and around Amsterdam. Consisting primarily of American and Dutch business people, the club also includes a broad variety of nationalities and professional backgrounds.

Founded more than 30 years ago in 1983, the Amsterdam American Business Club was meeting informally even before that. With nearly 1000 members and Interested Parties the AABC is the professional network club for making and maintaining business contacts in an enjoyable, informal setting. We organize over 11 events each year at great locations in and around Amsterdam.

The AABC is governed by our board of directors that consists of many talented individuals of various backgrounds and talents. Our board and committee members serve the AABC on a voluntary basis and all strive to enhance the AABC experience for our members, sponsors and interested parties.

“The AABC has been a valuable networking resource for me since moving to Amsterdam. Through various AABC events and programs, I’ve had a chance to meet a number of quality contacts that have served me well in many professional and personal situations. I find the AABC to be a great resource for anyone that wants to interact with U.S. nationals as well as other international minded business people who share an interest with the United States. Come join the AABC and share your cultural and business resources with us.”
