If you’re not yet familiar with it, Expatica’s ‘I am not a Tourist’ Expat Fair is the biggest expat-oriented event in the Netherlands. And this year, for the third time, it’s coming to Eindhoven!

‘I am not a tourist’ Expat Fair Eindhoven, organised with the Holland Expat Center South, is a prime opportunity for the international community in the south of the Netherlands to get the low-down on life in the ‘low countries’.

On June 10 the historical VDMA area in Eindhoven’s city centre will see 50 specialist exhibitors and more than 1,500 internationals come together to exchange information, find opportunities, orientation and business contacts.

There will be workshops on all sorts of topics: think employment & entrepreneurship, banking, tax and insurance, housing and education. Opportunities for internationals in the Netherlands and in particular to the Brainport region of Eindhoven will be highlighted, and experts will be on hand to give you one-to-one advice.

This year’s special theme is ‘Jobs for expats’ and is designed for visitors who are pursuing an international career in the Netherlands. Employers, experts and recruiters will be on hand to help expats wishing to build a professional network, continue their education, pursue their career or succeed as an entrepreneur.

Follow the ‘Jobs for Expats’ signs on the exhibition floor to find the employment stands at the event. Grasp strategic networking moments by the hand and mingle with specialists from major industries. You can find everything you need to succeed in the Dutch job market under one roof at the Expat Fair.
