Get to Know Us

Initially established in 1983 as the German Australian Business Association (GABA), iGABA changed its name in 2021 to Innovative German Australian Business Alliance when association members approved a new constitution reflecting the creation of a strategic partnership with the German Australian Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AHK).

​Benefits of this partnership for all iGABA members include the provision of AHK membership updates, member rates for AHK events in Queensland, and AHK webinars.

​The Memorandum of Understanding between iGABA and the AHK was signed on 21 October 2021 by Christoph von Spesshardt (AHK) and Leon Stephan (GABA). The signed copy can be requested by iGABA members from the secretary at any time.
