Participants simply need to sign up to the mailing list and RSVP before the event date, and are given a name badge at the meet-up. We often provide a goodie bag to give everyone the opportunity to share something - a great way to be a little creative and help your new friends to remember you.
The next Sydney abcd meet-up will be in Winter 2013 at our old haunting ground, The 3 Weeds in Rozelle, hosted by Steph from Bondville and Lisa from the red thread.

abcd meet-ups were co-founded by Steph Bond-Hutkin (Bondville) and Kim Wallace (Udessi) in 2009 after meeting for the first time in real life for coffee. We wanted to meet all our online contacts in the creative fields, and give them a chance to meet each other too in a fun, relaxed setting. The first meet-ups were held in Brisbane and then Steph started organising meet-ups with Lisa Tilse (theredthread) when she moved to Sydney in 2010. We hope to continue to help creatives grow their small businesses through opportunities to connect and learn in a warm, collaborative environment.
