New: Gatherings and events in the Cayman Islands

Hi,

Would you like to have a coffee, organize a dinner or find people for activities in the Cayman Islands?

To help you meet people and find outings in the Cayman Islands, we launched a Gatherings and Events section in the Cayman Islands: you can now follow what’s going on in your area and make the most of your time off.

You can also create events and organize a gathering with the Expat.com members.

How to create a gathering?

On the Events in the Cayman Islands page, click on “Post an event”.
Fill in the form with the details related to the gathering: date, place, hour… and post your event.

It’s now time to invite the other members! You can opt for a public event or a private one (Invitation or Invitation plus).

To send invites, click on “Invite friends” on your event page and select who you wish to invite.

Get informed of who is coming through this page and get in touch with the other members or add pictures of the events in the comments.

A photo album dedicated to the event will then be created.

What do you think of this new feature?

Thanks,

Julien

Julien. The reasons why Cayman's expat community doesn't get together the way expats do in other places are 1) because there are so many different nationalities represented here, 2) because we comprise about two thirds of the local population of 50,000, and 3) because expats are mistrusted by the local ethnic Caymanians; if we all got together, the anti-expat brigade would assume we were up to no good! Here's a link to a piece I wrote a few years ago that explains the situation here.

So. Expat gatherings are a nice idea, but they aren't appropriate in a place where expats are mistrusted. Sorry!
