2021 the most creative year ever? Just wait for 2022!

Even though we have proof the Czechoslovak-Dutch Chamber of Commerce was founded on 12 September 1936, we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Netherlands-Czech Chamber of Commerce in its current form in May 2022. So, stay tuned!
While being conscious of the fact that 2021 was a tough year for many people, it turned out to be one of the better years for the NCCC Traders by Nature.
On 14 October 2021, the first ever Creative Heroes of the Czech Republic were chosen during a splendid gala award dinner at the ŠKODA Museum in Mladá Boleslav. Click the header image or this link for a video impression of this energising and inspiring evening.
The Creative Heroes Award Czech Republic programme will continue throughout 2022 and is supported by its Platinum Partners ŠKODA AUTOImpact Hub, and ING Czech Republic, and by its Gold Partners NN, Albert and Future Port Prague.
On 10 November 2021, we celebrated our Young Professionals Charter with an online programme focused on creativity and innovation, embedded in history. You can watch the entire programme here.
We hope we concluded 2021 with a BAMM! At the wonderful restaurant Lví Dvůr in the Prague Castle Gardens, our guests enjoyed good company, active matchmaking, excellent food, and drinks. Scroll down for a visual impression of our last event of 2021.
We would like to thank all our members, partners and friends of the house for your loyal suport during 2021. Let us continue on our journey to create positive sustainable impact together.
2022: here we come!

New Year's Reception 2022

Thursday 20 January 2022


Subject to the then valid restrictions, we intend to organise our traditional New Year’s Reception. More information will follow in the beginning of January.

Let's conclude 2021 with a BAMM!

Thursday 9 December 2021
Restaurant Lví Dvůr, Praha 1 

Interesting people, excellent food and good drinks, the Prague Castle Gardens, and a bit of Dutch attitude: why not? (as in: why not join this event?) were the main ingredients of the BAMM! event by the NCCC Traders by Nature; Business Active Matchmaking.

We had a great time at the Lví Dvůr Restaurant, and the light snowing outside made the view of the nearby Prague Castle truly breathtaking. After this year's last event, we already start looking forward to 2022: a year when the Netherlands-Czech Chamber of Commerce will celebrate its 30th anniversary!
