Marbella Business Institute
Founded in 1982, the principal aim of the Marbella Business Institute (MBI), as its name implies, is to establish, maintain and conduct an association of persons interested and actively involved in business in the area. Members meet for lunch on the last Friday of every month, and there is a guest speaker who delivers a talk on aspects of business, law, administration, and other subjects of general interest.
Other aims of the Institute include establishing the importance of the foreign business community in the area, fomenting relations with local authorities, financial institutions, the Administration, etc, creating a forum where English-speaking business people can exchange ideas, and encouraging connections between this business community and Spanish business on a regional and local level. Attendance is by invitation-only and applications can be made via the MBI's website www.marbellabusinessinstitute.org
