Marketing and sales

Few nations have embraced globalization quite like the Dutch. Indeed, the Netherlands regularly comes top of leading international rankings such as the KOF Index of Globalization and the DHL Global Connectedness Index.

In addition to being one of the world’s most globally facing nations, the country offers one of the best-developed transportation and logistics networks anywhere in the world. And, being positioned close to Germany, France, the UK and other major European economies, the Netherlands is a fantastic springboard for reaching all-important consumer markets.

The perfect location for international teams

But there are many other reasons for this. The excellent Dutch education system and a highly trained, multilingual workforce allow employers access to world-class talent in areas such as marketing, sales and communications. The Netherlands ranks fourth for ‘Higher education and training’ in the World Economic Forum Global Competitiveness Index, for example, and second for ‘On-the-job training’.

With the addition of a supportive tax environment, it is no surprise that many overseas businesses choose the Netherlands as the base for their international or regional marketing and sales operations. These include leading multinationals such as IBM, Verizon and UL, as well as small- and medium-sized companies, tech start-ups and challenger brands.
