Shoptalk Meetup

How does Meetup's pre-event process work?

On Monday, February 20, 2023 (that’s 4 weeks before Shoptalk starts) we’ll reach out to guide you step-by-step through a simple process to participate in Meetup:

  • Step 1: Profile Completion. Complete your profile, letting all participants know about you, your organization and your goals.
  • Step 2: Meeting Selection & Opt-In. Review thousands of profiles and select who you want to meet with–use filters, lists and searches to make it easy. Thousands of other attendees will be doing the same. Then opt-in to the meeting requests you receive.
  • Step 3: Meeting Acceptance & Scheduling. After you review and accept your meetings, we’ll automatically schedule them and send you calendar invites.

Then, simply join your meetings onsite. And remember, all meetings are double opt-in, guaranteeing you'll only meet people you want to meet who also want to meet you.
