They know the mobility industry very well, with its benefits and challenges. That’s why they wish to educate about this business, encourage networking and help professionals grow even more. Their ultimate goal is to shape “the future of a dynamic, innovative and growing mobility community”.
To help their mission of educating and informing, they share the latest news about the industry, they even have a minute and a magazine. They also hold different relocation events throughout the year with experts invited to talk about a specific topic.

Finally, there are the Service Provider Memberships for “companies that want to market their services within the workforce mobility industry”. You choose which service provider membership you want based on your companies’ profile.
