The end of the year is fast approaching and 2020 is just around the corner.
Next year is going to be a big year for Steem with Hive Communities and SMTs coming on stream.
Now is a great time to start planning and to start networking to take full advantage of the new opportunities that will be coming on Steem in the next few months. Getting involved with a local meetup is a great way to make a start.
Coming up before the end of the year there is the SteemPhilly / Splinterlands Meetup being organised by @yabapmatt in Philadelphia. There is also a first meetup in Ukraine on 28 December being hosted by @rollie1212 and @cryptobrewmaster. @adesojisouljay is planning a Steem meetup in Ogun State in Nigeria and is looking for people to get involved.
In Australia @mattclarke has organised an end of year Steem BBQ in Adelaide on 14 December.
Anyone else organising any Christmas or New Year Steem events?
Meetup.com can be a great tool for organising Steem meetups particularly for bringing in new people that are not already involved in Steem.
There are 17 Steem Meetup groups listed around the world... Austin, Belgrade, Berlin, Hamburg, Los Angeles, Louisville CO, Munich, Nairobi, New York, Nürnberg, Olympia WA, Philadelphia, Montreal Québec, San Bernardino CA, Seoul, Toronto, Zürich...
Unfortunately many of the meetup groups appear to be inactive now. If anyone lives in any of the inactive areas I would love to hear from you if you might be able to help reactivate the sleeping groups...
