Thursday 10 September 18:00 – Welcome to Helsingborg

Just arrived in town? This is a popular time of year for new arrivals and we want to do our best to make you feel welcome! Or maybe you’ve been here a while but are curious to learn more about Helsingborg?  Perhaps you’d like to build up your network and expand your social circle? Join us for the first HIC event of the season, where we’ll do our best to answer all your questions!

Our first speaker will be Eva-Lotta Bergström from Helsingborgs Stad, who will talk to us about Helsingborg in its historical, geographical and commercial context as well as the city’s plans for the future. You’ll also hear about Vision Fund, the municipal initiative set up to help people realise and test out their ideas for a better Helsingborg and get hints and tips from a new member of the HIC community!

We’ll let you know about HIC’s plans for the autumn, how we support the local international community and which other networks are available for you to join! There will also be time for Q & A.

Doors open at 17:30 for refreshments and first speakers will begin at 18:00.

Due to COVID-19, we are running this as a “hybrid” event, with a smaller audience than usual and a Facebook live stream. Please sign up if you would like to join us in person! 

Our priority for this event is to welcome new arrivals, so if you have already attended the same talk last year, please wait until the day before the event to check if there are any available spaces in the audience – thank you for your understanding!
