At the BritMums Live 2012 conference this year I organised an expat meet-up. We had so much fun chatting and getting to know each other in 2011 that I thought, let’s do it again! Almost 30 people turned up, with 18 expats. No, it wasn’t exclusively expats, many of us brought friends who live in the UK as well because it seems silly to have an exclusively expat meet-up when everyone just wanted to hang out and say hi.
I love these kinds of meet-ups–some of us also meet up from time to time throughout the year, because expats seem to be open-minded, friendly, supportive, interested and interesting. Well, these expats do anyway. They’re great people to be around.
You can check out the expats who were there in my BritMums July Expat Round-up. And if you’re interested in attending BritMums Live 2013, you can buy your tickets at the super duper early bird price of £39.99 here (price is held only until August 6th).
The date is 21/22 June 2013, location is central London, and there will be another Expat Dinner so if you’re around, it would be lovely to see you there!
(PS Mark it on your calendar!)
