*AIC* Expats get together – Sinterklaas drinks & surprises

December 8 @ 8:00 pm - December 9 @ 1:00 am


Hello dear members of AIC!

This is Sinterklaas week!!!

In the past I have organized expats events to celebrate Sinterklaas and it always has been a great success! Why shouldn’t we do it again??!

This is the concept:

Every guest brings a little present of a minimum value of 2€. It can be anything like a chocolate letter, keychain, an old book, a bracelet, socks… Something little, and please make the effort and wrap it! 🙂

When you will arrive there will be a big box where you will leave your present and get a new one left by another member. Be creative, funny, silly, but be part of the game!

The first time I organized this event I was a bit worried about organizing an exchange of presents for such big amount of people. But almost all the people joined the game and it has been a real success! So I count on your support, let’s make this work again!

We will do this at Sorel’s!!

Sorel’s is the beautiful bar of the Marriot Hotel, located just 3 steps far from Leidseplein.

This venue is stunning. When I saw it the first time I thought: “This must be the place where to organize an event for AIC!”

I have contacted the management and I have agreed that there will be a reserved area fully dedicated for us and they will also provide a live music entertainment

Obviously the entrance is FREE!

As the description of our group says:

“We exist to to get together people with different nationalities and backgrounds, promoting good vibes for newcomers or expats living in the country since long.

Weekly we organize events around the city of Amsterdam to socialize, make new friends and have fun with other internationals and locals


You can come to our events alone or with some friends. In any case when you will go back home, you will have met a lot of new friendly people and shared with them fantastic experiences!”

Do I need to say anything else? 🙂

Remember, a lot of the people attending our events recently moved to Amsterdam and are coming to socialize and mingle with other expats!

Based on my own experience, I really recommend (especially if you are new) to come around the beginning of the event. It is the easiest way to meet and start a conversation with the other members. 🙂

As usual there will be an “AIC drink/food deal” for all our members, but this I will announce it only couple of days before the event, so keep in touch! 🙂

See you at Sorel’s!
