Feel at Home Fair will bring the International Community together online
For more than a decade, the Feel at Home International Community Fair has been an annual celebration of the uniquely connected and cosmopolitan community of The Hague: providing a warm welcome to newcomers and a friendly meeting place for internationals already living here. An event where everyone and anyone in our diverse community can Feel at Home.
In previous years, the Feel at Home International Community Fair has been a successful one-day event attracting as many as 200 exhibitors and 4000 visitors to The Hague City Hall. Unfortunately due to current COVID restrictions, we cannot hold this as a live event – but feel it’s more important than ever that the community continues to connect.
Therefore we are pleased to announce we are organising an online event on Sunday 14 March 2021
The centre piece of the Fair will be the live streaming via two simultaneous channels from 11:00 to 17:00. You can also engage with Sports,Social & Community and service providers via their online virtual stands.
Channel 1 – Information and Panel Shows
On the first channel we will broadcast information, interactive debates and panel discussion shows on themes and information relevant to the Expat & International Community.
Online viewers will have the possibility of interacting during the shows and afterwards via breakout sessions.
The six shows are:
Welcome to The Hague (by The Hague International Centre)
Work and Careers (by The Hague International Centre and Volunteer The Hague)
Finance (Partially sponsored by ABN AMRO)
Education (Partially sponsored by Leiden University and The Hague University of Applied Sciences)
Making the most of a mobile life (by The Mobile Life)
Channel 2 – Enjoying Life in The Hague
On this channel will stream performances and videos from the Expat and International community, as well as showcasing professional culture, entertainment and sports and there will also be some surprises.
Some of the content will be live but many of the performances will be pre-recorded.
Tickets for the Fair are free. Registration for tickets will open in the middle of February and will be announced here on our website and social media channels.
