10 YEARS EINDHOVEN NEWS – YOU ARE INVITED – EN JIJ OOK
September 21, 2019 @ 14:00 - September 22, 2019 @ 14:00Free entry, but donations welcome
For 10 years, Eindhoven News has been keeping internationals up to speed on what’s happening in the Brainport region through their online platform. That means millions of people have read their news articles, received an abundance of background info on expat life, and attended the thousands of events they’ve publicised.
A very good reason to celebrate this together with all readers, all (previous) volunteers, all supporters, fans and interested people. International and local.
Behind the scenes, an event team is busy preparing a great day of festivities. Of course, for all.
