Why participate in Meetup?

About 60% of the 25k Meetup meetings taking place at Shoptalk Fall will be between retailers or brands and their future (or current) technology partners – condensing months of market research into 3 productive days. But the sky is the limit: Any type of meeting can be facilitated – that’s what that other 40% represents. Explore startups, find an investor, talk to the media, meet another retailer or brand or reconnect with an old colleague. Define your needs for others to see – the perfect people will find you and vice versa!

Maximize your time

Meetup takes the guesswork out of networking, removing the risk of wasted minutes by providing you with a sophisticated platform to clearly define your needs and identify the perfect people with whom to meet. The outcome? Months' worth of meetings packed into three productive days.

Control who you meet

Say goodbye to speculative connections, and hello to meaningful ones. With both parties required to opt-in to any given meeting, rest assured that you and the person sitting on the other side of the table are there because each of you recognizes the potential of that connection to be transformative for your businesses.

A resounding success time and time again

Meeting facilitated in 2023: 100,000+
Satisfaction across all those connections: 90%
