Newcomers Network – „3 Pillars Model“

The Newcomers Network is a three pillars model with the main goal to reach the international community. The purpose of the Newcomers Network Website is to create a platform designed for the international community living in the Frankfurt-Rhein-Main region.

Newcomers Festival

The first pillar is the Newcomers Festival. It is held annually since 2001 on the first Sunday in September in the Frankfurt town hall, the Römer. The Newcomers Festival is a family-oriented exhibition fair of services and organizations for the expatriate community such as relocation companies, international schools, health insurances etc. Last year the festival was attended by 5.000 visitors from 95 countries and 65 exhibitors.

Newcomers Guide

The Newcomers Guide is another practical tool designed to help English-speaking expats get off to a good start in the region. Published annually since 2002, this 136-page publication is an essential reference guide that takes readers step-by-step through the process of adjusting to life in the region.

Newcomers Network Website

The Newcomers Network Website is a platform that provides information on a wide range of topics essential for expats to have a smooth start in their new home and above all to explore and enjoy their stay in Germany. Here they can find information about different service providers in the area such as relocation companies, health insurances, banking and finance, international schools, driving and language schools, non-profit organizations, clubs, museums, theatres, tourism & many more. On the webpage, the expats can also register for the International Stammtisch (Round Table), which takes place every Monday of the month.
