The BPV is the professional organisation that represents most of the foreign correspondents who cover the Netherlands for foreign media outlets. Our members work for some of the most important international media, including Reuters, Dow Jones, the Associated Press, the BBC, the Financial Times, El País, and some 100 other media outlets.

In addition to professional journalists, many Dutch companies and organisations also sign up as sponsors (or “donateurs”) in order to help us do our work. Please see below this page a complete list of current donateurs.

The BPV opens doors for our members. We provide a press pass which is accepted throughout the Netherlands as an official form of identification, giving members access to press conferences and news locations. We also organise events with the top newsmakers in the Netherlands. About once a month, we hold working lunches for journalists with civic and corporate leaders. Please see “events” for more details.

Our donateurs are very important to us, but they also benefit from their membership. We publish a membership list once a year, which is distributed to our friends, as well as a yearbook that displays some of the important stories written by our members. The list is also available in electronic form for our donateurs.

We hold receptions in The Hague and Amsterdam, to give our members and donateurs an opportunity to socialise together. Our goal is to increase the level of involvement between sponsors and our organisation for the mutual benefit of both donateurs and members. Please read below for more details on how you can participate.
