Do you want to meet NEW people, do something DIFFERENT, and have FUN? That’s what Random Events is all about. We create a social environment by hosting a variety of adventure, activity and random events. We create our own and work with our partners to host quality events for anyone with no restriction on age, sex or even Facebook status (“Single”, "In a Relationship" to “It’s complicated”) . We excel at providing a safe social environment that not only allows people to learn and have fun, but walk away with a few new friends.
Random Events is a for profit that hosts FREE, Low cost and adequately priced events. The profit goes to things like overhead for renting space or technology, meetup organizer fees, website fees, planning the event, help, prizes, helps cover the costs for our free events and other random expenses to keep a business running. When planing events, charging for events also helps us reduce the risk of losing money for events we commit to hosting, but don't make the minimum for.
We do our best to keep costs affordable, organized and fun. It's one of the reasons why we been able to do this for over four years and have over 11k members with almost 100% attendance at events. We could easily charge more like other companies but we choose not to. We are less about getting rich quick and more about being able to continue to keep this group going and building a community.
It all started with Will setting up events with his friends via evite. His friend list became over 700 people and evite would no longer allow posting. He then turned to Meetup for a place to manage his larger list.
On March 22nd 2009, Random Events Meetup was born. It quickly began to grow in size and after two months was featured in Time Out NY.
