Instagram’s Worldwide InstaMeet in Dubai – September 9
Every year Instagram organizes a get-together of all Instagrammers from around the world known as Worldwide InstaMeet.
In line with this, this year, on the weekend of September 8-10, tens of thousands of people around the world will get together to explore their creativity and connect with others around a theme that unite us all – Kind Comments!
How To Participate!
a. Join an Instameet
An InstaMeet is a group of Instagrammers meeting up to take photos and videos together. That’s it! An InstaMeet can happen anywhere and be any size. They’re a great opportunity to share tips and tricks with other community members in your area, and an excuse to get out and explore someplace new!
You can find an Instameet near you by simply visiting http://community.instagram.com/
Use the map on http://community.instagram.com/ to find InstaMeet participants in your area, then follow them on Instagram. When you see an announcement, make sure to invite your friends, the more Instagrammers, the merrier!

While you explore the creativity of your fellow Instagrammers connect with them around the theme that unites us all – Kind Comments! Click pictures, Give Kind Comments to one another, Talk or post about the Kind Comments you’ve received.
We’re planning the meet at Rove Healthcare City and then we’ll proceed to a photo walk around Al Fahidi /Meena Bazaar/Bastakiya area. All you need to do is to take a picture with or of the shop owners, sellers, or bystanders or with the people who interest you around the surroundings. Write something nice & kind about them or about meeting them.
You can also showcase your photography highlighting how kind Dubai residents are to the newbies in town whether they’re residents or tourists.
So, that needs to be done is showing up at the scheduled hour & venue & Instagram. If you have any questions, simply leave a comment on the photo announcing the InstaMeet. Again, all you need to do is show up!
c. Spread the word
What if you can’t join or what can you do now are the most asked questions currently.
All you need to do currently is spread awareness and build excitement by telling people about your InstaMeet on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and Twitter.
If you’re not able to join the event, no worries at all. We’ll be live from the event so you can join in virtually, after all, what are Instastories meant for. You can also post from your home/office or any other place you’re in with the given hashtags and you’ll be a part of the Instameet. Our only goal here is to get Instagrammers meet one another, click pictures & share kind comments.
