I'm new to this - What's a "Meetup"?

intro

 

Our Meetups are one-of-a-kind, online meetings and collaboration events that bring a large group within the retail industry together for curated, double opt-in meetings and small group peer discussions. It's a proven and productive way to connect online with both new and familiar faces, in a fun, friendly and open environment. Plus, it's incredibly efficient... you can have 3 months worth of meetings in just 3 half-days! 

Why is everyone joining? 

They’re joining to do what every community does to move forward--work together, learn from each other and collaborate.
Shoptalk Meetup for Women includes a version of our Hosted Retailers & Brands Program, but it’s very different
because it focuses on all of the interactions you have on-site at Shoptalk and Shoptalk Europe--not just lead gen.
