Expat and new to the city of Rotterdam? Looking to connect with fellow expats, families and  local communities? Join our online Expat Café, which takes place every last Thursday of the month.

We can understand that because of COVID-19 you are not able to connect with the city and network with other expats like you would want to. But there are still great initiatives in the city and communities you can join online.

During the monthly Expat Café get togethers, Rotterdam Expat Centre and Rotterdam Venture Café together with partners within the city would like to help you make valuable connections and to feel at home in your new city. We will tell you more about the city and activities you and your family may be interested in. Every Expat Café meeting, one fellow expat will share his or her journey of coming to, and living in Rotterdam. We hope and trust these personal stories will inspire you

Networking will be an integral and important element of our Expat Café events, which will start at 16:00 hours. You’ll be able to meet and talk to fellow expats and get to know communities. Rotterdam Expat Centre will be available at one of the online info tables. We’ll be happy to meet you and answer any questions you may have. For this, we will use a tool called Remo. Read more about this tool here.

Finally, every Expat Café event a different expert will host an information workshop about a specific, relevant topic for internationals. Please find the full overview below:
