Host City Glasgow Dutch Partnership in Sport Events 26-27 November 2019

Finish of the Volvo Ocean race in The Hague


Words of Welcome It is a great pleasure to welcome such a vibrant delegation of innovative Dutch companies, and the Orange Sport Forum, to the wonderful city of Glasgow. A business visit to this centre of one of the UK’s largest and most successful city regions is always worthwhile, and now especially timely as Glasgow has just been declared European Capital of Sport for 2023; a remarkable feat in itself, and one that sees Glasgow as the first city to claim the accolade for a second time, having also held the title in 2003. Glasgow is home to a number of world-renowned professional sports clubs, but it has also made great efforts to encourage incorporation of physical activity into the everyday life of its residents. Sport has also been an important asset for local development: since 2003 over £200 million has been invested in building and improving sporting facilities across the city. The focus on the proven combination of developing elite-level sports along with grassroots activities will feel very familiar to us Dutch, as the Netherlands utilises a similar approach to the development of sport within its communities. As the Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the UK, I have had the privilege of congratulating many Dutch athletes on their outstanding achievements in a wide range of sporting disciplines throughout the UK. The Netherlands is recognised for its strong track record in superb organization of large-scale sporting events, and over the years I have come across many of the Dutch entrepreneurs who have succeeded to make the sport a strongpoint of the Dutch economy. Your presence in Glasgow will be another valuable showcase of Dutch expertise and craftsmanship in the arena of sporting events and organisation, management and technology. I am confident that the high quality of your products and services will excellently position you to make the most of business opportunities arising from the many events and initiatives Glasgow has planned for the coming years, both on the highest competitive level as well as in the recreational sphere. Whenever you need more information about the local business environment, please feel free to get in touch with the Embassy. My team stands ready to help you come out of the starter blocks‌ go for the win. Simon Smits Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
