What we're about

This is a group for expats, diplomats and internationally minded expats in Zurich. As an expat you leave your social and professional networks behind and have to rebuild them from scratch. As an internationally minded local you also want to engage and interact with other internationally minded people and with expats. Join us to meet such like minded people and make new friends.

We will meet regularly and rebuild our networks. This group is a part of 'The Expats Club' of global socialising and networking groups. (www.theexpatsclub.net) We will have local community managers who will organise weekly/fortnightly meetups including drinks, dinners, talks, hikes, travel etc.

Our purpose is to connect international people, encourage greater understanding between cultures and help people create social support structures and professional networks rapidly.

Our emphasis is on quality of people over quantity. We have smaller groups of 20 - 40 people for a good reason. Everyone enjoys it more! Large groups are overwhelming. 2) We do many unique and different events and so attract a different quality of a person. We are around the world and know how to help people of all cultures mingle. 3) We always host events. Our hosts actually welcome you and introduce you to others. There is no board carrying a person or check-in table or name stickers etc to socialise with us. 4) We always welcome members and introduce you to other members. You will never be alone in our event. 5) Our events have internationally minded, well travelled and secular locals as well as internationally minded expats. You always meet people of different languages, cultures and backgrounds. You will always benefit in addition to making new friends. 6) We have over 525,000 members in 32 cities with over 150 meetup groups! We host over 100 events a month. We never take commissions or backhanders from our venues. We are upfront with our costs and ask you for it. ------------------------------------------ Please watch this video to see why you should attend our socials: http://bit.ly/whyattendoursocials
