The American-German Business Club concept was founded in 1964 in Bonn by a group of American businessmen.
Little did they realize their “Luncheon Group” would evolve into a national organization benefiting hundreds of American and German business people in Germany, and significantly promoting international cooperation between our two countries.
Since the fall of the Wall in 1989, the main emphasis the America-German relationship has been on commerce – strengthened by long-standing cultural ties. The AGBC grew during the 1990s with the founding of new chapters.
The AGBC has 600+ members with chapters in Bonn, Frankfurt, Heidelberg, Kaiserslautern, Munich, Stuttgart and Wiesbaden-Mainz. These members come from a wide background of business-related professions. The AGBC chapters feature expertise in American and German business relations.
Interaction within and across German/American organizations is now even more important. The AGBC chapters remain politically neutral by charter. We locally nurture the transatlantic partnerships, especially those related to trade and business. This includes providing forums with other American, German, and international networking and educational organizations to promote understanding of the evolving shifts in international business momentum and to identify the underlying opportunities. The AGBC supports free trade, the sharing of ideas benefiting both countries, and personal interaction between business people within Germany. The AGBC is open to people of all nationalities who support its goals.
