One of the annual highlights of my calendar while living in the Netherlands is the Expatica I Am Not A Tourist Fair. I worked with Expatica for 6 months as their social media manager not long after I arrived in The Netherlands for the second time (from January-June 2013). I have also given a presentation at the 2013 and 2014 Fairs.
The Expatica I Am Not A Tourist Fair is a wonderful way to connect with the english-speaking Expat community in the Netherlands. In 2014, it was held on 2 November at the beautiful Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam.
InLivin’ Amsterdam put together a video of the 2014 Fair which you can watch below.

Would you like to attend a future Expatica I Am Not A Tourist Fair? Order your free ticket online via the Expatica website. Hope to see you there! The 2015 Fair will be held on Sunday 4th October. In between fairs, you can always visit www.expatica.nl for plenty of news and information online, sign up for their enewsletter or look for the annual “Expat Survival Guide” available at many popular expat locations in The Netherlands.
