ORGANISED BY /

BEC helps skilled foreign professionals and their families living or planning to live in Brno get settled in the area.

Our mission is to help foreigners find a new home in Brno.

For the expat fair, we are bringing all that we do online throughout the year into the Brno City Market Hall for one day.

SUPPORTED BY /

The City of Brno supports the activities of the Brno Expat Centre, being aware of the important value the international companies and institutions and their employees bring here. Brno's vision, as a diverse, open and tolerant city, is to attract and retain increasing numbers of talented foreigners.

The City wants to facilitate the reception and integration of foreigners in the public and private sectors. This also includes its goals in the Brno 2050 Strategy presented at the fair.

The event is organized under the auspices of The Lady Mayor of Brno.
