Event description

Description

The Sheffield Meta-Meetup is the meetup for people who organise meetups, and those who would like to.

It's an opportunity for organisers to meet and exchange tips, collaborate and pool resources in order to make each other's events more successful. Many of the meetups are 'tech meetups', but not all - the meta-meetup is open to anyone who organises regular events around particular topics or for specific communities in Sheffield.

This edition of the Meta-Meetup will take place at Spaces, on the ground floor of the Acero building in the Digital Campus.

The format of the Meta Meetup is in four parts:

  • 5:30 - 5:45pm
    Arrival and welcome refreshments.
  • 5:45 - 6:15pm
    Short talks.
  • 6:15 - 7:15pm
    "Open space" discussions.
  • 7:15 - 8pm
    Food, drinks and networking

The 'open space' discussion will either be for all attendees at once, or we'll split into individual groups depending on how many people there are. The discussions will be on topics chosen by the participants. Each new topic is introduced with a question. Participants can provide opening questions by writing them on a flip-chart when they arrive or at any time after.

We currently have the following speakers lined up:

  • Chris Dymond will be talking about Sheffield Digital's acquisition of the Open Tech Calendar and plans for its future.
  • Steve Kenwright will be describing how SearchLeeds went from an idea for a meetup, to the biggest one day digital conference in the north of England in 4 years, while staying free to attend.
  • Mo Said will present his new side project to build better digital tools for online communities.

We close at 8pm, but, if people would like to carry their conversations on, we may retire to the Queen's Head pub after the event.

This schedule may change, so please check back before the event. And do pass this link on to anyone you think may be interested.

And don't forget to register for a (free) ticket so we can track numbers!

The venue has excellent accessibility provision, and if you have a disability, or any additional needs, and require assistance in order to fully participate in the event, please let us know when you register.

We can cater for all dietary requirements, but please let us know of your specific needs on registration.

The event is intended for adults and we can't provide supervised child minding, unfortunately, however we are child-friendly and can make provision for you to bring children should you wish or need to. There are also good breastfeeding facilities on site. Please let us know on registration if you have any childcare requirements.

We will also accommodate guide and service animals, of course.



We hope to see you there!
