Super Vimeo Meetup, 2009!

Andrea Allen
June 25, 2009 by Andrea Allen Staff

Hey everyone,

Last year, Vimeo hosted the first Super Meetup in New York. It was a huge party and many of Vimeans came from far and wide to meet other Vimeans face to face. It was like stepping through the computer screen... I would know... I was there.

And now I'm excited to say that we've scheduled another Super Vimeo Meetup for Saturday, August 15, 2009. We have an amazing line-up of live entertainment complete with video installations, a set by the mix-masters the Eclectic Method, and tons of Vimeo's creative minds and friendly people.

We plan on having a live feed of the event broadcast on Vimeo, so even if you can't make it out, you'll still be able to "be there."

Join the Vimeo Meetup Group. Coordinate plans, share videos, and see other Vimeo meetups happening around the world!
You can say what's on your mind in our Festivals and Contests forum post. We also set up a Facebook Event where you can RSVP if you'd like.

When:
Saturday, August 15, 2009 at 8:00 p.m.

Where:
Monkey Town
58 North 3rd street
Brooklyn, NY

This is going to be a killer party so I really hope to see you all (in real life) there!

Pull the community together and watch on a BIG screen.

OMG, I can't wait!! I went to the Vimeo Meetup Group and I don't see an JOIN button/link. Maybe I'm already a member? I was at the first Vimeo gathering, so maybe I joined then? At any rate, I will see you guys there!

Why don't you make the next one a European party, somewhere in the middle, like Berlin or Prague?

Hey Blake, I live in Sofia actually, but would make a long drive for a Vimeo party ;) If you ever come to Sofia, write me, would love to have some beers together.

You ought to organise one of these in the UK soon. It should be presented by Andrea. No disrespect to the rest of the staff, but if Andrea's not in charge of the UK meet up, then I for one am not interested.

Blake Whitman Staff

we're doing a Vimeo Offline in London around the 25th or august, but I guess you won't be there now will you Steve R???!!

SteveR Plus

I'll have to boycott it if Andrea's not there.

Been wanting to visit NY properly for ages, might try and get some time off work to come over this period, maybe get some cheap flights from Heathrow to NY. Make a cool video of the trip, failing that i'll be watching the webcast :)

Michael Benjafield

Yay! Have you had any ideas on a venue? i live just outside the city if you need any suggestions or help :)
