Invitations to all events (Individual | Corporate | Gold)

As a member you are invited to all events of the Diplomatic Council (ambassador’s receptions, new year’s receptions, summer celebrations, special lectures, business talks, get togethers, champagne tasting and many more exclusive events for invited guests). You will be meeting ambassadors and consuls, a circle that is usually difficult to get access to. Whoever attends an event at the private residence of the ambassador, is a decision maker on a higher level.

Invitations of events of DC partner clubs (Individual | Corporate | Gold)

You will receive invitations to events of our partner clubs and business associations.

High quality of contacts (Individual | Corporate | Gold)

On our numerous, jointly organised events with other business clubs you will continuously win new business partners. In this respect, the Diplomatic Council serves as a “business club” where members and guests do not solely touch base with diplomats but also and in particular with new business partners. Currently a business volume of more than 300 Million €  is scheduled. The “diplomatic level” represented by the Council of Ambassadors guarantees a high quality of contacts.

Seal „Trusted Company – UN Consultative Status“ (Corporate | Gold)

Diplomatic Council corporate members (silver and gold) are entitled to carry the ”DC Trusted Company“ in order to demonstrate their trustworthiness to their employees, clients, suppliers and other business partners. Each application for a corporate membership is carefully reviewed which is a prerequisite for the granting of the seal.

The evaluation of trustworthiness is executed by the Diplomatic Council as an organization in consultative status with the United Nations. For this reason, the seal also carries the addition: “UN Consultative Status“ because, as a matter of fact, each member can participate in the UN-related work of the Diplomatic Council.

After approval of the corporate membership, the seal is made available to the new corporate member in JPG format to allow the member to use the seal for marketing purposes on official letterheads, brochures, website, email signature, etc. as long as the company is a member.

DC Trusted Company INTERNATIONAL EXAMPLE

Business Xchange Service (Corporate | Gold)

Corporate members can initiate targeted searches for business contacts all over the world through the Secretariat General. Distribution partners, suppliers, cooperations….via the global contact network of the Diplomatic Council you can (almost) always find the right contact persons. Equally important: as an option, corporate members can also receive these global requests from potential business partners. In this way, business friendships are created via the DC Business Xchange Service.

Joint Event (Corporate | Gold)

On request, corporate members can organise a joint event with the Diplomatic Council. This will provide an exclusive platform for them to introduce their products/services to potential clients while establishing new contacts at the same time.

Services/Products for Club members (Corporate | Gold)

Corporate members can offer their products/services to other DC members at reduced or special conditions. DC members benefit from the favourable prices while the bidders is likely to find new target groups which creates a win-win situation for both parties. A relationship of mutual trust is built.
