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.

Good showing for our first meetup! We had about 40 people attend.

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:

We had a lot of great feedback from the attendees!

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.
