Want to learn Dutch? Find a house? Experience Dutch culture, find a job, make connections, or solve immigration and tax issues? Or just want to have a fun day? You can do it all at the I am not a tourist Expat Fair & Feel Good Market in Eindhoven in June.
This year makes it four in a row for the I am not a tourist Expat Fair Eindhoven, organised with the Holland Expat Center South and the event 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’.
By the way, If you’ve been to the fair before, please note, this year it takes place in a bright new location in the Klokgebouw in the city centre. Pick up your free tickets here.
On Sunday June 16, 50 specialist exhibitors and more than 1,500 internationals will 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 in the Eindhoven region will be highlighted, and experts will be on hand to give you one-to-one advice.
The three themes at this year’s I am not a tourist Expat Fair Eindhoven are ‘Jobs for Expats’, ‘Houses for Expats’ and ‘Education for Expats’.
The ‘Jobs for Expats’ section is for internationals who want to find a (new) job, build a professional network, continue their education, pursue their career or succeed as an entrepreneur. Visitors follow useful workshops and insightful presentations and meet exhibitors from various sectors including high tech,
You can also prepare ahead by taking a look at our Job Board for a selection of the jobs offered at the Expat Fair.
The ‘Houses for Expats’ part of the fair offers all an expat need to know about housing in the Netherlands. After all for buying or renting a home, getting an understanding of tenants’ rights, mortgages and property law is a must. Ask the experts on hand for advice or find out more at specialist workshops.
When it comes to ‘Education for Expats’, the Netherlands is committed to choice in Dutch education and there is a huge range of schools and universities in the Netherlands as well as numerous international schools, some of which are subsidised.
The Dutch school system, however, is quite unique and the choice can be confusing. During the Expat Fair Eindhoven, expats can follow presentations to help them to understand the Netherlands education system and make the best choice for their child.
Feel Good Market
There is more. The Strijp-S area outside the fair itself is hosting the Feel Good Market Eindhoven – a free and fun event which brings locals and internationals together outside the Klokgebouw.
You will find handmade, original and inspiring products on sale, delicious snacks, drinks, workshops and great live music. Shop, follow workshops, have a massage, get health advice, taste the regional and world food, enjoy the live music and relax on the terrace.
And we know that if the children are occupied and having fun then the parents can relax too, so there are lots of fun activities for children.
