#YVRMeetups – The Meetup of all Meetups

Meetup of Meetups

I just got back form the Meetup of all Meetups. Every year around Christmas time, a bunch of Meetup group get together to hold the Meetup of all Meetups. Everyone joined forces with the likes of the Real Estate Technology Meetup Group, Vancouver Blogger’s Meetup, the Young Professionals Meetup and other groups for one big year end social mixer.

Many of these Meetups share the same members and same goals; to help people connect, share best practices and create community. The Meetup of all Meetups brought together over 500 of Vancouver’s elites and peons for a night of networking, drinking and a trouble making.

Door prizes valued up to $500.00 were donated by The Vancouver Board of Trade, Ceilis Irish Pub, Reachd, and Ubertor as well as several other organizations. I wanted to give away the OhMiBod sex toy but the meetup turned it down. There was a contest to see who can post the best twitpic. Your first drink was on the Ceilis pub. However, I ended up with five because, well, I’m John Chow!

    Interesting. I go to a lot of meetups, but not the tech ones. Maybe I will try them out.

  11. So much of business success is who you know. These type of meet ups are awesome for making contacts and friends to business with down the road. You never know when you may have just shook the hand of your next big J.V. partner.
