Meetups in the summer of ’12

Kaitlyn Ellison

The summer of 2012 has seen some great milestones for our 99designs Meetups!

  • We announced the 99th Meetup Community created in Dipolog City, Philippines
  • We’re also almost at 999 participants – we’re excited to break 1,000
  • We’re now in every continent except for Antarctica – still working on that 😉

This summer we’ve also seen some great events organized and we’d love to share them with you:

Meetup: Niš, Serbia

Sometimes, great things come in small sizes. This meetup group in Niš, Serbia, spent their time touring some of the sites of their city. Big props to Kristina Tomić (aka KikilyDesigns) for organizing the event.

Meetup: Cairo, Egypt

In our first official African Meetup, some of our great designers from Cairo gathered together to chat about their work and 99designs strategies. The event was organized by leader Islam Magdy (aka iMagdy) and the group plans to have many more in the future.

Meetup: Bucharest, Romania

Adrian Nita (aka azanti) organized the latest Meetup event in Bucharest Romania. Designers gathered in the beautiful outdoors to connect and to plan for future events.

Thank you so much to the leaders of these Meetups! We couldn’t do it with out you 🙂
