PLEASE JOIN OUR GROUP ON FACEBOOK - https://www.facebook.com/groups/theexpatsclub/

This is an Abu Dhabi group of 'The Expats Club' which is a global network of online socialising and networking groups. The Expats Club operates in 20 cities around the world, with over 50,000 members, through a variety of platforms including meetup.com, Facebook and our own platform at www.theexpatsclub.net (http://www.theexpatsclub.net/) and at http://www.meetup.com/pro/theexpatsclub/

We tend to have a number of groups in every city to meet the needs of many niches in the community. A number of times we combine group events so that everyone can meet each other. I hope you enjoy your membership of our groups. Please feel free to write to me at info@theexpatsclub.net or text/whatsapp/call me on +971552829430 or +447715705005 with any comments, complaints, thoughts or suggestions. I look forward to meeting you at one of our events soon.

Please be aware that most people come to meetups and events alone. We make it our business to welcome you at the door, introduce you to others in the group and ensure that you are comfortable quickly. We are also at hand to assist if you have any issues or would like to be introduced to anyone specifically. We only ask that you are well behaved in your online and offline interactions with other members.

We also do group holidays a few times a year, when we invite members from all our groups around the world to join us at one holiday destination. I very much hope you will join us on one of those trips as you will meet people from around the world (including any locals who are part of our local groups) and vastly improve your enjoyment of the holiday. It is an unsurpassed experience and always a grand party!

My thanks and best regards

Dan Raj (Founder)

Please be respectful of everyone) CLICK TO SEE PHOTOS FROM PAST MEETUPS http://bit.ly/Oursocials ------------------------------------------ Why should you attend our Socials? We have taken away any and all issues surrounding socializing and meeting new people in Abu Dhabi. 1. Meeting new people in groups can be intimidating. The organizers of the Expats Meetup understand this and so welcome you when you arrive in our reserved area. We then proceed to introduce you to a few like-minded people so that you can chat and settle down. 2. Our socials are very casual and laid-back affairs. We have no registration table, queues, guest lists or ceremony. All you do is walk in like you are meeting old friends and just say hello! 3. There is a very good reason why our socials have small groups of between 10 and 30 people. That is because small groups are better for socializing and everyone can actually meet everyone else through the course of the evening. Everyone just enjoys themselves more! 4. No one is alone in our socials. No starring into glasses and watching others chatting. Our organizers will help you make connections. Just reach out to them. Organizers will be there to help you and introduce you to the other members. 5. We, almost always, tend to have a very good gender, age and cultural balance. No one group dominates, there are no cliques and everyone is very open to make new friends. You have no absolutely no excuse! There is no need to be shy or worried about meeting new people. Come out and join us. We will help you meet people and make new friends! ---------------MEMBER VIDEOS------------------------ https://youtu.be/QNCS7SKajD8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2wEcW9ReUU&t=41s
