Antwerp Chapter

Red Star Line Museum
Exclusive Nocture at the Red Star Line Museum, October 2013.


The Antwerp Chapter's aim is to improve business and investment opportunities for the large US-Belgian business community in the Antwerp region and develop an active program of local/regional activities in this region.

More than 360 US companies call the wider Antwerp region their home. Those companies employ close to 40,000 people and continue to invest significantly, not in the least in people and in innovation. They are a major success factor of the Antwerp regional economy.

By setting up an Antwerp Chapter, AmCham Belgium aims to reach out to the US and international companies based in the Antwerp region at large and to provide these companies with a regular and varied program of US focused networking and information opportunities. Antwerp region companies will have access to new business contacts, will have more opportunities to exchange knowledge and best practices and stay up-to-date with business developments in the area.
