A warm welcome!

“Orientation” – the 1st event of the Expat Center Zeeland took place at the building of the Dow PV Terneuzen in cooperation with the International Club of Dow Benelux. The event was meant for international employees (and their family) working at companies in our region and in Zeeland. 

The event was big; 41 stands together with our affiliated partners, with education organizations, city marketing and tourist organizations, various municipalities from Zeeland and a group enthusiastic entrepreneurs with a fantastic passion for food, drinks, experience and enjoyment.

We are proud with the feedback. A selection of reactions: “it looked very good and professional”, compliments for the organization and quality”, compliments for the organization, you do that very well!. This day shows that Zeeuws Vlaanderen and Zeeland think along with the internationals to build a successful stay and life  in our region. It was also clear what the area does offer. In a nutshell, a warm welcome.”

We very much appreciated the feedback from the stand participants and from the internationals themselves. Especially the education and housing market areas attracted many interested parties. The information and possibilities have received a top ranking.

At the same time there was the opportunity to hear the vision related to these developments from the municipality (mayor municipality Terneuzen Erik van Merrienboer),  education (relation manager HZ Applied Sciences Bert Schollema)  and business industry (Dow senior site leader Solange Solsona). Erik van Oosten (region manager VNO/NCW) moderated this part of the event in an excellent way.  The food market at the terrace and garden of the PV building is unanimously experienced as top! A good closing of the event for chatting & networking.
