The "i am not a tourist" Fair also features a kids room, where you can leave your children in professional hands while you talk to exhibitors and enjoy the programme.

The "i am not a tourist" Fair will have a range of valuable resources from previous European fairs, but with extra attention given to community-related resources for the experienced expat. Those of you who already have your bearings in Spain can therefore enjoy as many of the features as the newcomers; including food and drink, entertainment, local clubs and workshops.

So even if you have lived in Spain for years already, come and discover what’s going on within the expat community and learn more about your adopted country. Our fair is all about enriching your life abroad, whether you are new to the expat lifestyle or an experienced veteran.

For those new to Spain and in need of information, our fair will supply a selection of the best resources this country has to offer. The "i am not a tourist" Fair brings a broad range of companies and agencies who specialise in expatriate services together under one roof.

From banks, investment firms and insurance companies to schools, local clubs and tax agencies, all expat businesses have their place at our community fair. The stand holders are there to help you with house and job hunting, immigration and permits, staying long term, starting your own business and more.

The "i am not a tourist" Fair gives you access to the international community, be it through individuals, groups, clubs, or businesses. This one-day fair presents a wealth of information and resources to boost your life abroad. Whether you’ve lived in Spain for five months, five years, or even if you haven’t yet made the move, you will surely find something of interest to you.

Tickets are free when ordered online, and 10 e-ticket holders will be randomly selected during the fair as the winners of an Expatica T-shirt. Be sure to join us at the fair and see if you are among the lucky ones!
