Make Life Happen!

HIC events are the perfect way to expand your social and professional network. We offer a range of informative and enjoyable events, which will help you settle into your new home in Sweden.

Our guest speakers have included experts on Swedish cultural norms, family and private law, volunteering, association life, recruitment, local activities, unions, and employment insurance, to name a few.

We also know how important it is to relax and have fun in a social setting, so we regularly arrange coffee mornings, pub nights, weekend walks, and other activities for international talents and their families.

Internationals from over 60 different countries have attended HIC events, many of them over a period of several years!

With the assistance of our friendly volunteers and ambassadors, we provide a warm, welcoming atmosphere, which ensures that all our guests feel included and supported.

We look forward to meeting you!

Our events are free of charge but we ask that you kindly inform us if you can’t attend. Thank you for your understanding.

Upcoming events

Drop-in Sessions


Join us for a tour through Helsingborg, where we’ll learn about the city’s history, culture, and famous people! From battles with the Danes to the early industrial days in the south and cultural highlights in the north, Helsingborg has a wealth of fascinating facts to uncover! The walk will begin in Söder and end near Dunkers kulturhus. Your guide will be Sally Russell from HIC.


Welcome to our annual picnic! This is a perfect opportunity to make new friends and connections, especially if you have children about to start a new school the next day. We’ll play kubb, the classic Swedish outdoor game also known as Viking Chess! All are welcome – please bring your own food and drink and something to sit on.

Not so much a coffee morning as a community event for “old” and new friends! Join us at our informal coffee morning to find out about life in Helsingborg, pick up valuable tips, and build your network! Find us at the large table at the foot of the stairs in Bruket Kaffebar, Bruksgatan 9, Helsingborg. No need to register, just drop in. We look forward to meeting you!

Have you just arrived in Helsingborg? Would you like to know more about the city? Are you curious about innovation? Would you like to make new friends and contacts? If the answer to any of these questions is “YES”, please join us at our annual Welcome to Helsingborg event! Whether you are new to the city or already live here, this is the perfect opportunity to make new friends and contacts, find out about HIC activities this autumn, and learn about the city and the new Helsingborg Innovation District.
