National Diplomatic Business Connections Forum

National Diplomatic Business Connections Forum

Thursday 31 August 2017

The National Diplomatic Business Connections Forum (NDBCF) is a collaborative event which aims to foster relationships between Australian business and the Diplomatic Corp based in Canberra.

This event enables businesses or Embassy representatives who want to explore trade opportunities and grow international relationships to build knowledge on regions of interest and market intelligence in a highly interactive format.

After the overwhelming success of the inaugural Diplomatic Business Connections Gala Dinner, the annual forum has now been expanded to include a trade briefing program.

At the Forum, you will

  • Develop and grow international relationships
  • Hear directly from diplomatic trade representatives, business leaders and influencers
  • Learn about international trade opportunities
  • Discover the benefits of working within an international community
  • Connect & network directly with members of the Diplomatic Corp plus local and national businesses
  • Build and share knowledge on regions of interest and market intelligence.


Great opportunity to mix with different people and have a chat in an informative atmosphere.

. . .

From the moment of arrival your friendly welcome set the tone and then throughout the evening your continual contact and sharing of introductions made the evening not only comfortable but productive. 

The high level connections I made at this event were invaluable to my international operations.

. . .

It was an absolute pleasure meeting such a diverse and dynamic group of people. I shall ensure we attend the next Diplomatic Business Connections Gala Dinner, in fact, we can’t miss it!
