InterNations Live! The September Festival Line-Up
InterNations Live!, our first ever Global Online Anniversary Festival, will take place throughout the month of September 2020. This will, of course, include themed official events and activities across our communities around the world —simply look for "InterNations Live!" in the event title. However, you will also have the opportunity to sign up for our special main stage events taking place at the end of September — listen to musicians from around the world, virtually travel the world with other global minds, and receive a surprise from InterNations Headquarters!
Now that we can truly cross borders and bridge cultures, we would like to celebrate how connecting online has encouraged us even more to follow our mission of making expat life a great experience, so let’s get into the InterNations spirit!
InterNations Live! The Global Online Anniversary Festival Line-Up
In addition to a diverse offering of big and small anniversary official events and activities, InterNations Live! offers five main stage events.
