Why Meet-ups Matter | Build a Thriving Offline Community

In-person event

About this event

The power of online communities is how they connect like-minded people and ideas in a way that was not possible before social media. Connecting your tribe online has many benefits for companies, organisations, and personal brands, however creating spaces for your community to connect offline can strengthen your community and increase brand awareness.

If you’re ready to take your online community offline there are a few things to consider before you get started. Running events is more than just picking a venue, confirming a speaker, and sending out invites. Your goal should be to provide value for your members and create a memorable experience where meaningful connections can be made.

Join us for our next event, where Cepee Tabibian will share her insight from running in-person events for her three online communities, Madrid Blogger Network, She Hit Refresh, and Facebook Leadership Circles: Madrid.

What we will cover:

• The purpose of going offline

• Fundamentals of event planning

• Best practices for engaging your community before, during, and after your meet-up

• How to host, moderate, and mc like a pro!

• Orchestrate a memorable experience that will bring them back for more!

Plus an event wouldn't be complete without some refreshments. We are glad to be featuring Cervezas la Cibeles and Baked by Jeanne.

Photographs of the evening will also be taken by Gareth from GTS Lifestyle.

Video footage will be captured by Bereng from Melaninjaja.
