What to Expect

Meeting the Team

One of the most important reasons for bringing this conference to you is to foster relationships between the Escape Artist team and our dedicated readers. There is no better way to truly understand what our readers are looking for in a life abroad than by getting to know you in person. Come to Phoenix and you’ll be able to put faces with the names of the True Expats, writers, and international living specialists that make up the Escape Artist family.

Expat Panels

The best way to decide if living overseas is right for you, or to determine what kind of atmosphere is the best fit for your life abroad, is to hear from those who have done it before. A main focus of the conference will be to hear first-person testimonials about what it’s like to move to a new country. We have selected a group of expats to sit on panels and share their experiences and discuss the joys and struggles of living abroad that you won’t read about in guidebooks. We’ll then break off into smaller groups for in-depth discussion about the topics of interest that the attendees like you have chosen.

Q & A

A portion of this year’s conference will be dedicated to answering your questions directly. We want to hear from you! Questions, comments, concerns, and even personal stories – we’ll make sure there’s plenty of time budgeted to hear from the past, present, and future expats in attendance that make up our global community.  Send me your questions now.   Let me know what answers you’d like to take home with you.


When we talk about the global community, that’s exactly what we mean. Community is one of the most important aspects of living internationally. But how do we find others like ourselves who want to live and invest abroad?   At our Phoenix conference, you’ll be able to socialize and meet other like-minded people who have either been living the expat lifestyle or are considering taking the plunge. This type of interaction is truly invaluable letting you build real, long-term connections and valuable contacts. You’ll be able to discuss pros and cons, motivations and trepidations, and get a sense of the locations that your peers are considering as offshore landing spots.
