The leading expat fair in the Netherlands
Since it was established, the IamExpat Fair has connected more than 360 companies with more than 22.000 visitors from 150 countries around the world, and hosted more than 175 workshops and information sessions, making it the leading fair for internationals in the Netherlands.

About the venue
Visitors can easily reach the IamExpat Fair on foot, by bike, by car or by public transportation, thanks to its convenient location in the historic city centre. The venue is the spacious Grote Kerk in the heart of The Hague. Along with the famous Binnenhof, this historic building is one of the oldest in the whole city. Its immense size, impressive high-vaulted ceilings and beautiful stained-glass windows make it one of the neighbourhood’s most significant landmarks.

The Grote Kerk is often used for events such as exhibitions, fairs, concerts, and, of course, church services. Not only that, but weddings and baptisms of the Dutch royal family continue to take place here every year. So, what better place for the leading expat fair? The Grote Kerk has been home to the IamExpat Fair The Hague since Saturday, November 5, 2016.
