When Expats Get Ready to Cut the Birthday Cake

September is always a very special month for InterNations. Around the Munich headquarters, the colors of the leaves are slowly turning, temperatures are dropping, and Oktoberfest tents are set up. But September is also the birthday month of InterNations.

Birthday_Abu Dhabi2 In the past eight years, our network has grown from a humble start-up to the largest expat network in the world. We now have 1.8 million members and around 100 employees. So, we decided to celebrate this milestone in style with our members, Ambassadors, and Consuls.

All throughout September, we are hosting birthday events all over the world. Our members in Abu Dhabi met at one of the best night clubs the city has to offer, ready to cut the birthday cake. The Ambassadors of our Munich Community also secured a big cake for everybody before meeting for the birthday event at Crowns Club.

Members in Bangkok raised their glasses to eight years of connecting global minds at The Flow House, a venue with a wave surfing machine as its center piece. They enjoyed the evening over delicious food, as well as drinks at happy hour prices, and took the chance to win raffle tickets for free flow rides.Birthday_Munich

Smaller InterNations Communities, such as Algiers, Auckland, and Naples, celebrated as well. Montpellier used the 8-year anniversary as an excuse for a great party. And members in Reykjavik also partied in style, with welcome drinks, birthday cake, and jazz music.

Are you afraid that you have missed out on a great party? Don’t worry! We’re not quite through with the birthday celebrations yet, and countless InterNations Communities still have their birthday event coming up.

On Thursday, 24 September, Gothenburg invites members to a restaurant which impresses not just with its unique design but also with its delicious French-inspired food. There will also be a fun game to break the ice. The winner will receive a small prize.

The Los Angeles Community will celebrate at one of the best Italian restaurants in Beverly Hills. Expats in LA are invited to dress up in their favorite red attire and join the crowd.


InterNations members in Malta and their friends will meet on a beautiful rooftop terrace on Tuesday, 22 September. The view is breathtaking up there, but it is nothing compared to the relaxed ambience and great company. How else would you celebrate a birthday!?

Has your community not hosted one of our famous birthday parties yet? Keep checking our events calendar. An opportunity to celebrate eight years of connecting global minds might be just around the corner.


We want to thank all of our members, Ambassadors, and Consuls who have been with us all these years and are committed to making InterNations the wonderful community that it is.

  1. That’s lads and ladies……… Internations has been a Godsend since I came to Abu Dhabi……… a few sore heads but I can live with that.


  2. Internation helped me to build my social network in Dublin. Three of the many brilliant and lovely people I met at Internations events have become my best Dublin friends, so I am very thankful and I strongly recomend all the people in similar situations (expats, away from family and new to the Place, or just in search of new international friends) to join us!
