The Best Expat Groups to Join in Dubai

August 05, 2020
Let's face it, moving into a new city can be extremely daunting. And while even if a city like Dubai can easily make you comfortable with its many conveniences, it's probably still a part of the world you have no idea about. The culture here is extremely different and they take it very seriously, no matter how many expats have moved to the city. Which is why it's often better to network and find people you'll be comfortable with. You can help each other out in more ways than one! And fortunately, there's a good many expat groups you can join too!

The Best Expat Groups to Join in Dubai

 

Bibliophiles Book Club

What's a better way to connect with people than with a good book? Having to discuss what you've read and dissecting the different views and interpretations you have of the same story. Those are great ice-breaking conversations right there! So it's not a surprise that a book club will end up on this list. The Bibliophiles Book Club is a group of expats who all venture into different types of literature and make that the starting point of their relationships with each other. And the best part? A meeting is free to attend! Just go to BookMunch Café along Al Wasl Road and you'll find them there! 

 

Business in Heels

"Women have to stick together!'' That's the call of the new age feminism of today. And what better way to uplift that than to start a group of strong businesswomen out to take over the corporate world? Business in Heels is a meet-up group found all over the world but it's become its own strong expat community in Dubai. In a country known for its conservative views on women, the foreign (and a few local) businesswomen of this group seek to change the narrative for female workers in the city and hopefully, in the country as a whole.

Impact Hub

Who doesn't love going to a business lunch? You get to talk business, eat fine food, and simply have a great old time! If you enjoy that sort of thing, you'll love taking part in ImpactHub's events. They usually hold theirs during lunch at the SaaHa Offices in Downtown Dubai where, above all things, they eat lunch while discussing the future of entrepreneurship in the city and many more. There's no other group that has as much a passion for growing your business and filling your stomach at the same time. And who wouldn't want to eat great food? 

 

Network After Work at The Observatory

Everyone knows that, more often than not, many people simply don't have time to meet up. As much as they want to, their busy schedules keep them from meeting new people and hopefully making new friends. And while it's great to do on the weekends, it's already the only time within their busy schedules that they get to take the load off, catch up on their favorite series, and simply relax. That's why there's Network After Work at The Observatory! An expat meetup group that takes place in Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel after-hours that aim to bring many people from different industries. 

 

Under the Stars Networking Meetup

Setting up a similar objective is the Under the Stars Networking meetup. Here, a diverse group of professionals from many different industries meet up and mingle. Not only to form professional relationships that will benefit careers left and right. But also, hopefully, to form strong friendships that will see them throughout their stay here. While making friends in your own company is good and all, it's always better to widen your horizon and broaden your network. you may not realize the benefit and importance of having a friend from a different industry now, but when emergency strikes, you'll appreciate your having known them!
