About the EBF Conference

On the 4th and 5th of October, the 10th and lustrum edition of the EBF Conference will be hosted. The EBF Conference is the largest two-day economic and business conference of the Netherlands and attracts around 600 participants each year including students, academics, alumni and business participants. The EBF Conference consists of two different days, each with its own distinctive character. The first day will have an academic character, whereas the second day will be the traditional conference day. In 2017 the conference was distinguished by the theme ‘Managing Earth Inc.’ Speakers such as Kim Liegberts, CEO Tesla Benelux and Pieter van Mierlo, CEO of PwC Netherlands. Apart from inspiring key note speakers, this event offers many interactive opportunities to network with students and fellow company participants.

On the 4th of October 2018 the College Day, previously known as the Academic day, will take place. This day has a more academic perspective on current business trends. This day is generally smaller in scale, but allows for more in-depth information sharing. Last College day discussed ‘Energy in Transition’,  where professional and academics shared their expertise on the energy industry and the dramatic change its facing.

On the 5th of October 2017 the traditional Conference day takes place in the Martiniplaza. This day is filled with inspiring key note speakers, masterclasses and a start-up pitch. Next to that you have the opportunity to join us for dinner at the Martinikerk, in the city centre.
