ECMA Business Development Committee

The Business Networking Committee is the umbrella that coordinates the ECMA forums. The coordination of activities and membership programmes happens in close contact with the chairmen of the different forums.

The ECMA Business Development Committee develops member networking benefits and management exchange programs in liaison with the Executive Committee and the ECMA Forums. Furthermore the BDC has a coordinating role towards the forums.

The following ECMA Forums reside under the Business Development Committee:


The Business Development Committee special focuses on specific networking initiatives for Young Business Leaders. The Business Development Committee will also support initiatives on the use of “New Social Media” within ECMA, and encourages active (online) communities within ECMA. The importance of the exchange of business intelligence has increased, and the Business Development Committee wants to initiate new collaborations to give the members of ECMA access to more information. 

The involvement of the global folding cartons community within ECMA is one of the other objectives of the Business Development Committee. How can emerging markets be involved with ECMA? The organisation of study tours will be one of the ways to establish new contacts and to exchange ideas and best practices.

The Business Development Committee is chaired by Alican Duran (Duran Dogan, TR) and supported by Rogier Krabbendam (ECMA).
