WE TAKE IT ALL AWAY. PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW TO SEE WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT FROM AN EXPATS CLUB MEETUP? https://youtu.be/QNCS7SKajD8 PLEASE SEE VIDEO BELOW FOR INFORMATION ON OUR GROUPS AND WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT FROM ANY OF THE OTHER SOCIAL GROUPS IN THE CITY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2wEcW9ReUU&t=41s PLEASE SEE VIDEO REVIEWS FROM MEMBERS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bF_oxrWGqus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LI94TTR2-wU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCySVpj0oQU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODmtDd4jsU4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVXFyh_6VKU&list=PL0_NRE_GPkMWKCT76n8ui1RRJlruo0_vj https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqT7NJuVrfY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUmUpIdCcVg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQZsrHwxQVE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxKErw2oosw --------------------------------------------- Why should you attend our Socials? 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. 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!

We try our best to keep our groups safe and non pressured for all. We ask members to inform an organiser if you were to feel unsafe or uncomfortable. We also request all our members not to share your mobile numbers with any attendees unless you know then well. We also request you do not respond to any unsolicited meetup messages from strangers or members who you have only just met. --------------------------- Top Tips on making the best of our Meetups 1. Do not be shy: Everyone who attends meetups have to overcome this fear. Almost everyone who attends actually comes alone. Bring a friend if it makes it easier for you. Please remember that the organisers are there to help you socialise and so go meet them as soon as you come to an event. We will look after you the best we can. 2. Be friendly and welcoming. Meetups are social occasions. If you attend, make the effort to talk to different people, not just people you already know. Make a special effort to welcome newcomers and involve them in the meetup. 3. Attend a few meetups before you decide whether they work for you. The people at every meetup social are different as is the venue, environment, energy etc. One meetup is never like another. Attend at least 3 of them before you decide to become a life long member or stop attending. 4. Don’t just turn up, take part. Meetups work best when everyone participates actively, not just the organisers or old members. Come with a positive mind and cheerful, meet lots of people and involve others. Do not sit in a corner or look at your mobile. 5. Spread the word. If you’ve enjoyed a meetup, don’t keep it to yourself. Tell people you think might benefit. Share links on social media. Blog about your experiences and what you’ve learned and gained. New members are the life blood of the group. 6. Comment, review and feedback: This is a community and it requires both online and offline engagement with other members as well as the organisers. You are invited to provide constructive feedback on the forums. If you want to complain or have a suggestion then that is best done through email or mobile directly to the organisers. I would be delighted to hear from you by email to [masked] or by whatsapp on[masked]. Raj CLICK TO SEE PHOTOS FROM PAST MEETUPS ( http://bit.ly/Oursocials )

What we're about

Please be aware that we require a clear face photo (without sun glasses and goggles for men) for all members and also full and proper answers to all our questions in correct English. If you do not have a clear photo or answer the questions properly we will not approve you. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to meeting you at one of our meetups soon!

-------------------------

Dubai can be a wonderful city for the globally aware expatriate. You may have however outgrown frenetic clubbing evenings with teeny boppers and loud music and are yet not ready for long quiet evenings alone at home. You may be looking to meet with compatible, well travelled people with similar interests but diverse experiences, with the possibility of forging friendships based on deeper connections.

We are a group of over 2500 like-minded people, mainly single but we also have couples and those under 35 years of age, who prefer to socialise in relatively quiet locations where people can establish networks and friendships through interesting conversations and eloquent discussions. We also like to party and dance on occasion and so our meetups are diverse.

This is a Dubai 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 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!

My thanks and best regards

Dan Raj (Founder)
