INC GOES TO CARNAVAL 

Each year, Newcomers' organizes a tour to the São Paulo Saturday Night Carnaval Parade. This is one party you won't want to miss! 


GUIDED CITY TOURS IN ENGLISH 

Twice a year, INC organizes special tours around the city, with experienced tour guides that speak fluent English. The first semester tour focuses on a specific neighborhood, allowing members to explore a new area of the city. The second semester tour is called the INC ANNUAL SAMPA TOUR, and is a guided walking tour of old downtown São Paulo. These are great opportunities to visit the sites of this mega city. It's a tour you won't want to miss! 


EVENING EVENTS FOR COUPLES AND SINGLES 

Scheduled monthly on a Saturday night, INC members are invited to attend special events, which may include a dinner at a local restaurant, cocktails at an interesting bar or a party at a member's home. It's a great chance for couples to mingle, and singles to get out and meet each other.

WHAT DOES INC CONSIDER COMMERCIAL, OR A BUSINESS?


For the purposes of INC policies, if the activity proposed is that which normally generates revenue or promotes the sale of goods and/or services for that person, it will be considered commercial, regardless of whether or not the proposed activity through INC itself will generate profit. Similarly, if the activity proposed is unrelated in any way, directly or indirectly, to the person’s commercial activity, it will be deemed non-commercial for the purposes of this policy
