There is a growing expatriate community in Memphis due to the continued growth of the local music, pharmaceuticals and transportation industries. This means that you will be able to find a variety of clubs, community groups and religious organizations in the Memphis area. Your best bet is to contact either your local consulate (if one is available to you), or ask friends, colleagues or the local Chamber of Commerce.
Most expatriates socialize with neighbors, colleagues, friends or family from home. Many find friends at the nearby country club or social club. A place of worship is another good place to meet people. The local Chamber of Commerce and foreign consulates are great sources to begin your search for social connections in the community. There are also many professional and social club activities listed in local newspapers and on the Web.
Numerous events for singles are offered during the week, either at bars or hotels, and there are plenty of single clubs and organizations that go out of their way to connect people of similar interests. If you want to meet people of your own nationality it is a good idea to get in contact with your local Chamber of Commerce or Consulate, both of which tend to offer a wide variety of activities which you might be familiar.
Memphis' expatriate population continues to grow and as such, additional networking opportunities are presenting themselves. A great place to start looking for activities is in the numerous online expat forums in the area.
