It is a simple idea that could well be replicated or adapted for Fujairah.
The blurb asks:
Are you new to Dubai but don’t know where to start? Does Dubai seem bigger to you than it did in the Guide Books? Are you wondering how you might meet people?
‘New to Dubai’ is an event with useful information on clubs, sports, art groups, doctors, dentists, home help, banks, pets and much more.
‘New to Dubai’ is a free event organized but registration is required. Sponsors are helping to cover the cost of the event and they have the opportunity to exhibit their products and services. Look at the interest of these exhibitors.
The ‘New to Dubai’ Facebook Page is invitational but it is also flushing out questions from people about singing lessons for children or keeping pets.
New to Fujairah
Arriving in any new city is a challenge but what do you think about an appropriate event (or events) to ease those into the emirate who are new to Fujairah?
What would you have appreciated as you look back on your arrival in Fujairah?
It may not necessarily mean a whole Saturday event for Fujairah but a free buffet meal in a hotel with a few speakers, lots of resources and the chance to meet people.
More Fujairah news, info, resources and photos are posted on the Fujairah in Focus Facebook Page.
