“GABA has been instrumental in supporting NRW.Invest mission to market Germany’s No. 1 investment location, North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW). We are thrilled to work with them on upcoming projects”

“Thanks to GABA I found employment at a global corporation. I attended the annual GABA economic and financial outlook event and met a senior executive, who shortly after hired me as the West Coast Regional Manager. I have since attended many GABA events and am always impressed by the quality of the events and seniority of the attendees.”
