Holland Expat Center South wants to welcome internationals to the region. That is why we organize a Welcome Evening on the first Friday of the month at The Hub Eindhoven. This event is organized together with the Municipality of Eindhoven’s Living In Program.
We invite newly arrived internationals to this event to let them know that they are welcome in the region! The Welcome Evening gives them an opportunity to meet new people, and to get to know Eindhoven. It is the best way to get started living here.
The event attracts persons from all over the world.
attracts persons from many countries, including Brazil, Colombia, Turkey,
India, the United Kingdom, Germany, China, and more. Most of the attendees have
lived in the Netherlands for a few months, or as little as one week, but
everyone is welcome.
During the first part of the evening, attendees get a brief introduction to The Hub. It is a chance for them to find out about the activities that are organized at The Hub, and how the attendees can get involved by becoming a volunteer.
The second part of the Welcome Evening is a guided walking tour of Eindhoven’s city centre, which is led by guides from VVV Eindhoven. The attendees are put into two groups and are then led around Eindhoven, and given tips on where to go and what to do in the city!
like most about the Welcome Evening is that they are complete strangers at the
beginning of the evening,” says Rita Gabirro, a volunteer at The Hub. “By the
end of the event, you can hear them making plans to get together the next day
just like friends!”
If you are new to the Eindhoven area, please join our next event! There is no charge to attend, but registration is required via: www.hollandexpatcenter.com/events/
