Meetup Best Practices: Venues

At the WordPress Community Summit What the meetup? discussion, we created an action item to get meetup organizers to start sharing best practices. This is the first post in a series on Meetup Best practices for you to share what has worked for your meetup. Each post will pose a small amount questions for meetup organizers to answer. Out of these, I imagine some best practices will bubble up. At a minimum, the knowledge and background should help both current and future meetup organizers.

For the first entry in this series, let’s look at something every meetup needs, a location.

  1. Where does your meetup meetup? Do you meet at the same location every month, or do you move around? Do you have multiple locations that you regularly use?
  2. How did you find and choose your current space?
