Does this sound like you?

Moving to and living in the US is easy - or isn't it...?

Many expats underestimate the cultural differences and challenges one can face moving to the US. Most of us have been in America for vacation before our move and are definitely familiar with differing cultural aspects. We've all seen the Hollywood movies and shows, right?  But what about building a real life in the US? That's a whole lot different! 

If you are still in the planning phases, this event will help you save countless hours while you prepare for your expat stay in the US. If you are already here, we are sure you will find plenty of tips and insights to make your live a bit easier, wherever you are on your expat journey.

Why we created this event

Relocating to a different country involves juggling many moving pieces. Some challenges are obvious and there are many amazing companies out there to help with the planning stages and settling in. BUT - what happens when the "moving dust" has settled? When you have to fit into your new work environment, find a new identity or job as an expat partner, and need to make sure your kids are adjusting well, all while you are trying to figure out how on earth to build a credit history (and what exactly is that)?

The creators of this event and all our speakers have either been in your shoes before or have been working for years with expats and know their challenges. 

We are excited to meet you and answer your questions during 4 days full of knowledge, sprinkled wtih community access and entertainment.... YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
