Seattle’s First Blogger/Twitter/Seattle-ites Meet Up

Feb 19, 2010

We hosted our first meet up in Vancouver almost a month ago, and were really excited about our Seattle meetup/tweetup/blogger meetup, which happened last night at the Pike Brewery Co, which was the perfect venue.

Just like in Vancouver, the goal of the meetup was not only to learn more about some of our local bloggers, but also to continue the dialogue we started back in June when we produced the Great Urban Debate (Seattle vs. Vancouver).

Instead of comparing Seattle vs Vancouver, however, we hope to facilitate conversation between cities in the Pacific Northwest, including Portland. We believe this will enable us to discuss important issues while getting feedback from those that are local, as well as our urban city counterparts.

A big thank you goes out our social media consultants at Banyan Branch for partnering with us and helping organize the event, and to Pike Brewing Co for hosting the event. We had almost 100 people come through the meet up (some just wondering what a “tweet up” was…) and had a great time meeting some incredible Seattle-ites.

Thanks again to all who attended, and congratulations to @mattgoyer who won the drawing for the $30 Visa gift card.
