We’ll work with you to put your group and area on the map, and assist in establishing a flourishing community committed to knowledge sharing and collaboration. You’ll make great connections and boost your business in the process. You’ll also meet like-minded developers, store owners and eCommerce specialists. It’s a win-win!
How it works
WooCommerce Meetups are designed to benefit the local WooCommerce community, offering great opportunities for knowledge sharing and engagement. Meetups are casual gatherings, usually involving 1-2 speakers, that are organized by local volunteers, and sometimes sponsored by WooCommerce partners (or us).
These Meetups are not-for-profit events and are organized with full budget and funding transparency. Read Hugh Lashbrooke’s Tips For Organising a Successful WordPress Meetup for some information you might find useful.
What you need to do
When you contact us about organizing a Meetup, you will first be made a co-organizer on the event website with all admin rights. We use Meetup.com to organize all of our WooCommerce Meetups.
You should get the word out about the meetup you’re organizing using the Meetup tools and other social channels like Facebook and Twitter. We’re happy to get behind you on this with retweets and reshares from our accounts.
You should aim to arrange 1 or 2 speakers for the event. We could assist with some of our partners if they’re in your area; otherwise, reach out to the community to find appropriate guests.
Finally, sort out some relaxed drinks and snacks. We’ll assist on the finance side for this if needed.
