LIOF Foreign Investors Day: the network event for foreign companies based in Limburg

Limburg has over 500 current investors with a parent company abroad. They settled here because Limburg is at the heart of Europe; with a multilingual labor force and a wide range of knowledge and research institutes. LIOF is the central contact point for entrepreneurs outside and inside Limburg. On the LIOF Foreign Investors Day we offer you an unique opportunity to meet many other representatives of companies that landed in Limburg in the past years. 

As keynote speaker, Joris Luyendijk, writer and journalist, will share his view on the economic future of Limburg, the Netherlands, Europe. What is the impact for you and your business in the Limburg region? What can we learn from each other and, above all, do for each other?Furthermore we offer you four workshops in which we elaborate further on actual topics such as cyber crime and blockchain.

The LIOF Foreign Investors Day will take place on the 14th of June at Beachclub Degreez in Panheel.
