What we're about

Welcome to International friends in Melbourne!

Melbourne can be lonely place. It can be even more isolated if you are a bit older or if you are an expatriate who does not have a social network in the city. It is a lot worse if you are not fluent with Spanish! You seek substantive, intelligent conversations and not mindless chatter and in English thank you!

You are either new to meetup or have been on meetup for a long time and are tired of how the social activities have deteriorated in the other meetup groups in London.

Here you can see everyone from different cultures and races meeting and having a great time and this is what we tend to achieve everytime we host!

Here is how we will do things differently
Ever since Covid has occurred the world has changed ways in how we function and operate.
Meeting people of various cultures has become difficult with various restrictions and with online events people rarely have the opportunity of meeting face to face and this results in not getting the right opportunity to meet in person.
We will always have hosts at all our events. You will always be greeted by someone
at all our events and introduced to others. (Warm & welcoming hosts to help you
mingle!)

We will minimise no shows by requiring attendees to pay a deposit in advance. No
shows are misleading and not fun for organisers nor for members.
We will not disguise organisation costs in opaque ticket prices, commissions from
bars or inflated set menu prices.
We will instead ask for a small charge of a few pounds to help us manage the group and its activities. (Very Transparent)

We will strive to attract a high quality membership who prefer higher quality
venues and events. We will not be driven by happy hours, free food etc...(as all
of these are eventually balanced out by much higher prices later)
We will constantly request members to help us host events and take a lead on
activities so that we have energy and variety.

I very much hope that you will join us and create a vibrant social community
which is close knit and high quality.
