Guided tour: Amsterdam Exchange Experience
To give our guests a first-hand experience of the world’s first stock market, a guided tour was provided. When guests entered the trading floor, the impressive look of the scenes behind the Amsterdam Exchange immediately caught everyone’s attentions. The Euronext staff started the tour with a brief introduction of the more than four centuries old history of the building. Next, a visit to the exhibition room explained how the first stock market was designed and transformed over the past decades. Moreover, the tour included a unique experience where guests can interactively learn and test their skills as a trader and discover their personal risk profile. A visit to the Hall of Fame finished the exclusive tour.

The internationalization of the Renminbi
Next we started our evening event with a welcome speech by Mr. Igor Nuijten, the Secretary of Dragons Businessclub. He introduced the evening program and gave his gratitude to the audience and the event organizing team. Then Mr. Bob Gutjahr, the owner of NINO Food B.V. started his talk. He shared stories of how he started his business with baby food in Dutch supermarkets and how he seized the opportunity to extend the business to the Chinese market. During the Q&A session he explained how to deal with packaging issues and the future of e-commerce in China.

Mr. Laurens Maartens and Mr. Joost Derks, the currency experts from Dutch Payment & Exchange Company (Nederlandsche Betaal & Wissel Maatschappij NV) shared their insights on the internationalization of Renminbi. They gave a quick scan of the developments of China’s financial market, China’s economy and the currency market. They touched base on some popular discussions, such as stock market waves, the IMF reserve currency reviews and the future currency trend. In addition, Mr. Joost Derks gave a demonstration on-site of a €10.000 real-life transaction.

The evening ended with a delicious Chinese buffet provided by Nam Kee restaurants and informal networking.
