How is everybody doing? We are all excited to tell you about yesterdays first Munich Wedding Meetup. Right after we came back we started thinking about a little meeting with fellow photogs and some other people from the wedding industry around us. We checked some dates with the persons we really wanted to meet again after half a year and created a Facebook event (first time ever btw) but did not close it down rather we were promoting it quite big via our facebook profile and page. We thought we are going to have a max of 10 people coming but we were totally blown away as we checked the attendees a few days later! Yesterday we counted 26 of the most talented business people in the German wedding industry. Weddingplaner, Designer, Blogger and Weddingplatform Hosts and sure a lot of Photographers! Go Figure!
Seriously, we needed, and it looks like a lot of people wanted something like this here in Munich too. The idea behind such a meetup and our (Carmen and Ingo’s) philosophy is simple and easy: We are not competitors, we are colleagues! If you want to grow you need others to grow with you. We are stoked that we could pull this all together and found, that the friends joining us had the same feeling about the need of a social event here in Munich.
To make things a bit geekier :-) we put together a live stream for all the people living to far away or could not join the session for some reason. Not even thinking it would work that easy we had about 10 to 12 people following the get together for more than 1h. We have not deleted the streaming files yet, so if you want to sneak in the Meetup check it out here.
A little issue was, to find a proper place as a host of such an event. It should not be too loud and still something comfortable. So nam-nam was the perfect place. We would like to thank them for the very flexible and great hospitality. The food is delicious and the staff was great.
We for sure are going to organize the next MWM, to be announced very soon, and hope that you guys and even more biz people are joining our Meetups then. If you want to be up2date about what’s going on, you might like the Facebook page and/or follow WeddingMeetup on twitter. We also welcome any suggestions for future events. We will share some of our ideas soon. Let us know what you think in the comment section.
Have a good day and see you all soon
Carmen and Ingo
