The Expat Society is an international network of expats, mobile citizens, global nomads, & friends. We bring together great people from all over the world who, while often separated by borders and oceans, share a common upbringing that values diversity, worldly perspective, as well as a taste for great events and good times. 



Our Vision


Lifelong Community

Our aim is to build on the international exposure and connection many of us feel attached to, all the while inviting others to join our global community.

Home Away From Home

At the very core, we are a group of friends who find comfort and understanding through each others' cultural backgrounds.

Global Interconnectedness

By merging the physical and digital world, we hope to build on an unbreakable community that extends around the globe and brings together like-minded individuals.
