From careers to childcare, the Amsterdam IamExpat Fair has it covered

Need help with finding the perfect place to live, that next career move or even mates to hang around with? You’ll find all the answers at the fourth edition of the the IamExpat Fair in Amsterdam, which will take place on Saturday April 7 at the Westergasfabriek.

The IamExpat Fair was set up to support internationals in the Netherlands and connect them with local businesses and service providers so the organisers are delighted to be hosting their fourth Amsterdam edition.

‘The IamExpat Fair is designed for both new arrivals and established expats who want to discover something new or find answers to questions that have been bugging them for some time!,’ says co-organiser Nikos Nakos.

‘For example, finding time to make an appointment with a mortgage or financial advisor, can seem daunting, but here we’ve got them all under one roof,’ says his colleague Panos Sarlanis.

Indeed, the event is a great opportunity to find everything you need in one location, on one day. From companies and services in the areas of career, housing, education and expat services, to family, health and leisure – the IamExpat Fair has it covered!

Running from 10am to 5pm in the Zuiveringshal West at Westergasfabriek, this free single-day event will host stands from dozens of companies and organisations – in total 80 different exhibitors.

In addition, free workshops and presentations will be happening throughout the day at Het Ketelhuis, the Westergastheater and the Werkkamer. Find out about bitcoin, about how to network like a pro or buy a new home.

‘There’s something for everyone: from finding a job or childcare for your kids, to choosing a legal advisor, accountant or MBA and so much more,’ says the third member of the team, Charalampos Sergios.
