Lots of interest in IWCE at Expat Fair & Festival on a very hot Sunday 10 June


This year's "i am not a tourist" Expat Fair & Festival Eindhoven was again a prime opportunity for the international community in the South of the Netherlands to get the low-down on life in the ‘low countries’. The historical VDMA area in Eindhoven’s city centre saw 50 specialist exhibitors and more than 1,500 international professionals who came together to exchange information, had an entertaining day, finding opportunities, orientation and business contacts..


For the second year the IWCE took part in this event and we were delighted to see so many women at our stand to have a chat about what we have to offer. Talking about the networking role of the club lead to much interest of prospective new members.


Thanks to all members for helping to 'man' the IWCE table!

Annual members outing


Members Outing to Pre-historisch Dorp Eindhoven


Members enjoyed the IWCE's May outing to Eindhoven's Prehistorisch Dorp (Village) on Thursday 17 May.


The Pre-historisch Dorp is a well-reviewed museum in the south of Eindhoven. It takes you back to a bygone age. Trip Advisor reviewers give the village 4.5 stars, calling it "fantastic", "highly recommended", and "simply fun to be in".

The club took a tour in English led by a professional guide, learning about the lives of the early settlers in Eversham and the middle age village of Eindhoven. Then we enjoyed a casual lunch in the medieval-style inn.
