I've been fortunate to meet other members on the site in Vancouver, Montreal and NYC, and I know other meetups have happened. I wondered if perhaps a community-wiki type list by continent and city for anyone who would be keen to meet for a coffee would be a useful idea? You may be passing through a city and have no idea user X lives there, who could show you around or give you a great tip.

I thought I'd create an answer and people can edit the answer, rather than have a thousand teeny unordered answers.

As for contacting, I guess an @tag is handy, but the chat is another good go to place to organise.

    Would we not be better off more widely publicising the Facebook group? – Gagravarr Jan 1 '14 at 6:13
  • @Gagravarr I wondered about that, but there's no easy way I know of to have a big note in there to show where everyone is? – Mark Mayo Jan 1 '14 at 11:02
  • Is there any way to merge/share this wiki answer with expat.se -- would seem like there might useful overlap there if the idea is meeting other people, particularly since ex-pat (if they're interested) are often a pretty good resource for visitors. – SpaceDog Apr 4 '14 at 13:05
  • @SpaceDog not really, unfortunately. You could post a meta post there with a link to the travel one, which would potentially get some traction and some more connections across the two sites. – Mark Mayo Apr 4 '14 at 14:03
  • @Gagravarr fascinating. Didn't even know there was a Facebook group till I just saw your comment. Been using travel.se for years now... ! – Andrew Ferrier Jan 19 '15 at 14:49

    Another option might be to consider adding TripIt IDs (I've added mine). I find this a pretty good way to find when/where colleagues are going. (Personally, I use TripIt Pro too for a lot of my business travel, but that's getting off topic...) – Andrew Ferrier Jan 19 '15 at 15:43

    I'm somewhat ambivalent about this. I see two things wrong here - a. I don't know if the people concerned are ok with it or not b. How do you trust strangers when many of them do not even have their photo on travel SE. A meeting on meetup.com or something similar could be a game-changer of course. something which is similar to tripadvisor as well perhaps. – shirish Dec 15 '16 at 17:45

    @shirish many of us have met up already and it's been great. Meet in a public place and be safe :) – Mark Mayo Dec 20 '16 at 10:43

    If you don't trust, you don't put your name in it. Why don't you know if I'm OK with it? If I weren't, you wouldn't see my name. Of course I will make an individual decision should someone ask to meet. – WGroleau Mar 25 '17 at 22:23
