GBO Rotterdam


Global Business Owners in Rotterdam

GBO Rotterdam is active with both international and local business owners & managers as members. We have our club house located in the Sociëteit aan de Maas, a very good venue for our club meetings, centrally located and easy to access. We believe there is a need to provide business owners & managers in Rotterdam with a platform that creates interesting discussions, new business friends, a powerful network and many good forces to help each other and the local community. We also believe that combining business networking with a good social value is important.

Every local GBO club have an elected President & Vice President. Frank Bijl is our Local Club President responsible for our events, members & guests in Rotterdam. He and his team of members will welcome you at our meetings and make sure you get a good GBO experience. Contact Frank on email:
