New: Gatherings and events in Pakistan

Hi,

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

To help you meet people and find outings in Pakistan, we launched a Gatherings and Events section in Pakistan: 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 Pakistan 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

Hi Julien ,
Right now i am in Islamabad and was thinking to arrange some working colleagues gathering. Your post motivated me to volunteer myself for EXPAT.COM members to meet up too, for coffee and chatting and meet some good , like minded people. Islamabad is perfect for HIKING ,or tour towards mountains also--lets see if we can gather a group 

I would suggest a coffee shop name " Second Cup" in an Islamabad Mall call " Centaurus" , the coffee is perfect with varieties and environment is nice-- or even meet somewhere else if members suggest.

Please guide --

Regards
S.Haider

Good idea ... Centaurus is central place and different coffees ..
I plane to come back in Islamabad in april ... Maybe we CAN meet this time...

Hello S.Haider,

The section and its functions are there. You are free to create/organize their events and invite others. We invite you to use this section.

The place where it will be organized is yours.

Thank You,
Best Regards,
Naomi.

Thank you. it's great idea and new venture.

The event is an effort to invite a group of expats living in Islamabad or surroundings and also local like minded people for weekend activities / HIKING / tours or just even a movie club, The event will also try to explore if some Expat members want to share some art work / painting / poetry to display or want to show interesting journey photos on bigger screen .
