The Art of Internationalization

16-05-2019, 15:30-19:30

Breepark Breda (Bavelseparklaan)

Breda brings it together, the art of internationalization


The world is changing rapidly and globalization is on the rise. People are migrating more and more to cities (and to cities abroad). Urban expansion, however, is not to be taken for granted. People choose to live in cities that differentiate themselves. Where the living, working and business climate are well balanced. Where people work with a vision and have an eye for the future.


Breda offers diversity and togetherness in its DNA. A city that is attractive to (international) companies and where (international) talent can develop.


A city that connects among others due to its central location. Its position between international airports and ports and the link with the HSL network makes it increasingly easy to keep up international contacts.

Ondernemend Breda Ontmoet and Platform Breda Internationals
