What we're about

Based in Amsterdam, we are the largest and coolest international community in the Netherlands. We’re a social club for Amsterdam expats with an international membership that includes both recently relocated expats and long-term residents. Our doors are open to everyone. Whether you are an expat, a Dutch who's internationally oriented, or simply a traveller passing through, you're all welcome to join our growing multicultural family.

On a weekly basis, we host a range of networking and social events at various locations in the city, where expats and locals can gather to meet interesting people, create valuable connections and foster new friendships. Our events are always conducted in a friendly and welcoming environment.

We meet up regularly to: drink & mingle at various Amsterdam hotspots, explore the city's good food with social dining, watch comedy shows and plays, go clubbing and dancing, watch and play games and sports, go on special trips and rides... and other authentic Amsterdam experiences.
