Join "i am not a tourist"

The "i am not a tourist" Expat Fair at the Beurs van Berlage in the heart of Amsterdam serves the international community living, working and studying in the Netherlands and has become an annual institution, catering for newly arrived expats, long-standing residents, individuals and families alike.

Those new to the Netherlands
will benefit from a comprehensive range of services, conveniently housed together under one roof. Topics include housing, employment, banking, tax and schooling, all running alongside an entertaining programme of performances and workshops.

More experienced expats and long standing residents can enjoy food, entertainment, networking sessions, informative workshops and access to a wide range of groups and clubs. What's more, international artist Jim Collier will exhibit his work. Professional visitors, concerned with international mobility, should not miss the chance to network amongst this years largest gathering of industry professionals.

Nicola McCall (visitor)
"I hadn't been to the fair for 5 years; I saw some familiar and some new faces and enjoyed the talks. It’s a great event and was busy even on the sunniest date I can remember! I think it actually re-energises a lot of us, stay put expats, when we meet others in similar situations, even if we've been around the Netherlands for a long time. For me, it was a 'look how far I've moved on from when I first came moment'?"

Amsterdam Business School, Marjolein (exhibitor)
"Thank you for the great organization of the Expatica fair."

Women’s Business Initiative, Lisa (exhibitor)
"The "i am not a tourist" Expat Fair was a really special event, and our WBII members really enjoyed the day. Thank you so much for all your hard work!"
