Expat Fair 2019 460X326

Expat Fair Herning is an event for internationals in Herning - and anyone else interested. 

The idea of the event is to inspire and inform international citizens about activities, associations and things to do in the Herning-area. At the event there will also be opportunity to hear talks about Danish culture, living in Denmark as an Expat and much more. 

And of course the event is also a great chance to network and get to know new people.

Kelly Kristensen is a blogger and Youtuber of My New Danish Life and lives  in Central Jutland with her Danish husband and two sons. She moved to Denmark in the spring of 2016 from the American Midwest and has had an interesting time adjusting to the Danish culture and language. At this year's expat fair, she will be telling about her experiences moving to Denmark and giving tips to other expats hoping to make a good transition into Danish society.

- Astrid Andreassen, world traveller and event manager grounded and happy in Herning:
