Our Digital Marketing Meetup was a Success!
Last Thursday, I had the opportunity to host our first Meetup. We had a great turnout! The attendees represented a wide array of companies and backgrounds, including techcomm, digital marketing, eCommerce, and product strategy professionals.
For those unfamiliar with Meetup, it is a social network that allows people to organize and join offline meetings and events in their area. It’s not limited to tech or business – meetups range from wine tasting to pick up basketball. The platform is a great way to bring people near you with shared interests together – in our case, Chicago digital marketing and e-commerce professionals. If you haven’t already, you should definitely sign up and join our Meetup:
Dakota Systems sponsored the meetup at McCormick & Schmick’s. Unlike other events in the past, we decided to forgo any formal presentation or speech. Instead, we focused on creating a casual atmosphere that allowed attendees to network and discuss emerging trends and technologies in the industry. Over drinks and hors d’oeurvres, we had a lot of interesting conversations and met a lot of brilliant people.
Thanks again to everyone who attended – we had a great time! We’re tentatively planning our next event for the end of January. Keep an eye out for an announcement in the next week or so.
