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 our 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 in one of those trips as you meet people from around the world (including 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!

We have taken away any and all issues surrounding socializing and meeting new people in Dubai. 1. Meeting new people in groups can be intimidating. The organizers of the Expats Club 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 20 and 40 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. No one group dominates, there are no cliques and everyone is very open to make new friends.
