Don't miss this opportunity to showcase your business to The Hague's Bright Community at the Biggest and Brightest International Community Fair in the Netherlands.

The Feel at Home Fair presents an unrivalled opportunity to reach a huge cross-section of the influential and affluent international community. Last year, 4,800 people of more than 100 different nationalities registered for tickets.

There will be three different classifications for stand-holders:

Commercial stands for service providers, international employers, schools and universities; Small Business stands for companies employing three people or less; and Sports, Social and Community stands for non-profit clubs, churches and associations. You can view the size and specifications of the stands through the link Exhibitor Registration. Prices are unchanged from last year's Fair.

For service providers, the Fair is a platform to demonstrate the relevance of their products to international customers and show that their staff are not just English-speaking, but also friendly and approachable.

For international employers, the Fair is an opportunity to present their organisation to Hague residents and prospective employees.

The low price point for a Small Business stand makes the Fair a very attractive proposition for local entrepreneurs with businesses to reach such a large and important target audience.

The Seminar and Workshop Programmes are a further opportunity for businesses to present products and services in more detail.

Local and international Sports, Social and Community groups can participate free of charge. The Fair allows them to present the human face of their groups in order to attract new members and wider audiences for their activities and performances.

Further information about prices and specifications of the stands can be found on the website: Exhibitor Info.
