As I wrote in the original invitation for the September Meetup this will be my last as the main meetup organizer. Before I finish I would like to take this final opportunity to thank everyone who contributed to making this expat community a superb success.
Thank you very much to Carolin Beer, Pedro Pinho, Patrick Henriod & Mark Jessop for giving their time to help me this year run the meetup events especially the BBQs this summer. Their help has been invaluable, a lot has been achieved because of it. I'm certain they will continue to have fun organizing events for D?sseldorf Expat Meetup, I wish Mark every success as the new main organizer
My warmest regards to Margaret Gorman who created D?sseldorf Exapt Meetup in 2006, was the main organizer for two years when the membership rapidly grew. I'm very grateful to JT Richardson, Margaret and Dave Scott for giving me this opportunity to take over and organize meetups for this group. I loved every second doing this and being part of a wonderful group of local and international people
I'm deeply grateful for the invaluable help the staff at O'Reillys Irish Bar have given us since D?sseldorf Expat Meetup began. Their support ensured everyone enjoys our events; to Danny, Mark and all staff past & present at O'Reillys thank you very much for your hard work and being wonderful hosts.
Warm regards and special thanks to Caroline West of RhineBuzz! Our members have definitely enjoyed and benefited from the events she promotes and organizes, I would like to wish Caroline & everyone with RhineBuzz continued success and all the best for the future!
If you are new to D?sseldorf or just found our group, thank you for joining us! We hope we will continue to help by offering you the opportunity at least once a month to meet people from many nations living and working in Germany. Join us often, there are always new people to meet as this group continues to grow with the opportunity to catch up with friends from previous meetup events. I wish you every success during your time here!
To all regular members of D?sseldorf Expat Meetup, my sincere thanks! Thank you very much for your continuing support today and during the past four years. The warm welcome and offers of support you gave to new members who recently arrived in D?sseldorf ensured they enjoyed our company and encouraged them to come again - you have been fantastic
As I wrote previously, I'm damn lucky to have been given this opportunity and to have enjoyed your support. I wish you all the best.
Since 2006 we have been helping members new to Germany and those wishing to connect to an international community meet people from diverse backgrounds and from nations across the world. We usually meet once a month, the third Thursday of every month, but we organize more events whenever an opportunity presents itself.
Everyone is welcome! Just arrive, buy a drink and introduce yourself to fellow members. If you wish to find out more click on the About tab or browse through our photos of past events. These pictures should give you an idea of what we are about :)
If you are new to Germany, just found our group or you are a regular member we look forward to meeting you at the next event! We hope you will join us often in the future, we wish you every success during your time here!
