Meet Magento World – join your local community.

The main concern about attending an online conference is that you are not able to meet with people live or face to face. From our side we did our best, so you guys can meet, chat and network online on 6-8 December at the first online conference Meet Magento World 2016.

But we have great news for those who really want to spend these 3 days among their Magento friends and co-workers. You can join your local community and watch Meet Magento World together at our special Viewing Spots. Some of our partners and sponsors have already supported us in organizing these spots and we are sure that other partners will join soon.

What you can expect from MM16WOLRD Viewing Spots ?

First, we will give you a discount on our Regular Tickets, if you want to watch conference at  the local spot you can buy your ticket at the price of $200, instead of $300. Not bad, eh? All you need to do is to send an email to info@meet-magento.com and we will provide you the ticket link!

Of course our organizers will take care about the comfortable area for watching Meet Magento World broadcasting. Snacks, drinks, the one and only meet magento spirit, friendly atmosphere and who knows what else :) – are waiting for you!

You’ll be able to meet with others live, your magento friends and people who just want to become a part of community will be there to share this event with you.

Why this initiative is important for our organizers and for attendees as well?

Once you were a host of Meet Magento event, you’ll never miss a chance to do it once again. To take part in new activities always was the hallmark of the Magento Community and we are highly appreciate our partners for their support.

“As there was no plan for a Meet Magento Switzerland this year, I decided to organize a local viewing in Zürich of the Meet Magento World. It will take place on 7th December at the Coworking Citizen Space. We would like to provide a different approach and opportunity to the people to meet and share each other about Magento. The idea behind is to give access to a one day event and giving to the attendees the chance to ask questions and share experience directly with the other attendees. Like the Meet Magento World event itself, it’s the first time we do that, so we hope that the idea will be welcome and will attract few people. By taking a ticket, the attendees can also watch the conference online the day before and after the local viewing date.”

Sylvain Rayé, Founder at Diglin GmbH

“We love Magento community and will be happy to host other developers and Magento users who want to attend the conference together in our venue.  It’s unique way to organize local 3-days long meet-up to discuss all types of Magento ideas and experiences between daily work.”

Kuba Zwolinski, Founder at Snowdog

Become a Viewing Spot for your local community

We are open to add more viewing spots on the Meet Magento World map. If you feel that this is going to be awesome 3 days (as we do) and you are able to provide a great viewing location for your local community – just contact Annemarie Hache, Marketing & Events at Meet Magento Association. We will provide you with the information, tips and tricks you need to make an awesome event.

“It’s a big honor to be a part of the greatest eCommerce community in the world. The main power of Magento ecosystem is in collaboration between magento developers, experts and evangelists. We’re struggling to improve networking in Ukrainian Magento community. So we decided to become a watching spot for Meet Magento World – the first online Magento conference. Such format saves time and travel costs but it has restrictions related to communication. In our comfortable space you can watch the conference in real-time during all 3 days with Magento friends.”

Sergey Lysak, CEO at Eltrino

We believe that the Magento Community is always open to new experiences and opportunities. And we are aiming to use all possible approaches to deliver you only benefits from your participation. So it`s up to you whether you want to experience Meet Magento World at home sitting in your comfortable couch, in the office with your colleagues, or to join a local community and to share this event with them. No matter what you choose, you can expect a massive Meet Magento effect which is always accompanies all our events.

Our laziness is the number 1 driver of technological progress

No matter what image you might have of humans, you will agree with me that people like to have things as comfortable and easy as possible. This applies to big issues as well as small ones; we don’t really enjoy leaving our comfort zone. As a rule, we will consider anything that helps us improve our situation. If we can achieve these improvements without breaking out of our comfort zone, we generally have already won people over for something.

STAY HUNGRY, STAY FOOLISH! – a tribute to vision

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” – Rob Siltanen
