Our Vision
Expat Society is an international network of expats, mobile citizens, global nomads, & friends. We bring together great people from all over the world who, while often separated by borders and oceans, share a common upbringing that values diversity, worldly perspective, as well as a taste for great events and good times.

Our aim is to build on the international exposure and connection many of us feel attached to, all the while inviting others to join our global community. At the very core, we are a group of friends who find comfort and understanding in each others' cultural backgrounds. By merging the physical and digital world, we hope to build on an unbreakable community that extends around the globe and brings together like-minded individuals.

”Am I An Expat?”
An Expat is a global citizen, a cosmopolitan, an international. We loosely use the term 'expat' to cover anyone with global curiosity or perspective. Our aim is to build on the international exposure and connection many of us fostered in school, while inviting others to join our global community. So, if you're reading this, then yes - you're likely an expat. At least in our book.

Our flagship is in Los Angeles followed by expansions in Boston, MA, St Andrews, UK and San Francisco, CA.
