What we're about

Welcome to Hong Kong Socials, not just another Meetup group and no, not commercialized. This group is open to Expats, Locals and everyone in between. The events are all about building and expanding your social circle and do activities with like minded people. As long as you can respect each other and are open to 'socialise', you'll have a good time.

The events include going out to Bars, Night Clubs, doing outdoor/indoor activities, and Brunches/Lunches/Dinners; we enjoy meeting new people, making new friends, networking and having a good time. So if this sounds like you, come and join us for the time of your life!

We also encourage members to be active organizers of the group. If you have a great idea for an event, why not host it yourself. Click on "Suggest an event" and viola! an organiser will let you host the event. If you want to host regularly, then have a chat with Brownie and he'll show you the ropes.

Our Group Rules:

• SERIOUS RSVPs please. If you do RSVP to an event, we do expect you to attend. If you can’t make it, try to update your RSVP status as early as possible. This is most important for events where spaces are limited and there’s a waiting list. Think of the people on the list who might miss out! Our organisers do make time to plan events and make bookings, please respect their time and effort by keeping your RSVPs up-to-date. We have a policy of 3 NO SHOWs - you will be removed from the group if you hit the magic number

• Show Photo of your face when you apply for membership, so we know who we are looking for during events. Your RSVPs will be changed to 'No' until a picture with your face is displayed

• DON'T SPAM the EVENT PAGE/Group please don't spam the event pages or else getting information becomes harder

• Absolutely NO Sales/Business Promotion! IF you promote either of those 2, you will be banned!

• Posting links to other group's events is accepted and you can collaborate with other groups to host together. But NO SALES/Business Promotions rules still apply.

• If you have any event ideas or suggestions, or if you would like to host some events, please feel free to send a message to Brownie on Meetup or on TG or on WhatsApp

STAY SAFE & RESPECT OTHERS
Remember, we're unable to vouch for the character of everyone who joins us. Exercise the same personal safety precautions that you would take if you were in a public place. In turn, please treat everyone you meet with courtesy. Please also respect a person's right to privacy as an example - DO NOT hassle anyone for his/her phone number. As a tip, you can get a telegram ID with your mobile number hidden and share that if you want.

Welcome and have fun!
