Ready to Join?

It’s hot, it’s humid, and you’re new to Hong Kong! If you want to know how to jump right into everything this vibrant, dynamic city has to offer during these long summer days and nights, then come join us at the Newcomers’ Event!

The Newcomers’ Event is a special event in which we welcome all new arrivals to the Hong Kong community to network and meet new friends. If you’re new to the city within the past four months, you are eligible to come and get your mingle on!

This event is a perfect opportunity for you to get to know other expats newly arrived to the city who are also navigating through the same mire of questions you may have: housing, restaurants, nightlife, tips and tricks that will ease your life in Hong Kong.

Please join us again at SOLAS, one of the finest venues right in the center of Hong Kong, on Monday, 6 August, at 19:00. Let's meet, network, have fun and relax after working hours!

This is a free event - there is no mandatory cover charge!
There will be a special game that will help break the ice and allow you to get to know your fellow expats a little better, so DON’T FORGET TO BRING A PEN OR PENCIL.
There is a lucky draw, so please bring your business card to be eligible to win a very special something from our sponsors. (If you do not have a name card, we will provide you with the materials for you to fill out the requisite information for the draw!)

We are so excited to offer some amazing giveaways to all attendees of the August Newcomers’ Event: a bottle of spirits of your choice sponsored by Solas, comedy show tickets by our sponsor Takeout Comedy, and a special welcome discount coupon by sponsor OkSir!

If you would like to volunteer at the front desk to check people in for their name cards, please PM Sarah Lee.
The time slots needed are 19:00-20:00 and 20:00-21:00.
We are also looking for any photography buffs who would like to volunteer to take photos for the event with a professional camera. Again, PM Sarah Lee if you’d like to contribute.

If you have any questions, PM Sarah Lee!
This event is organized with the help of the Hong Kong Ambassadors and the InterNations HK Support Team.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
