3. Are MPNY events created for the sole purpose of meeting others?

Yes! Unlike many if not most Meetup groups, we actually mean what we say. Our mission is to connect people not to spam you with products or services that completely deviate from their Meetup group title. Meet People New York means exactly that. We only create and host events to meet people in New York.

4. Is everyone a meetup member who shows up to a MPNY event?

For the most part. We do market via other platforms but the majority of members are from Meetup. However, almost everyone who comes to our events come for similar reasons which is mainly to meet people and have a great time!

5. I am going solo. Is it easy to meet people going alone?

Yes, absolutely! We created these events for the purpose of meeting others. So whether you come solo or with a friend or two, everyone is going for the same reasons, which is to meet new people, make new friends and have a fun night.

6. I'm shy. What should I do or say when I go to an event.

If you are the "quiet" type, don't worry. At our events, everyone is friendly. Just say hi but more than not, someone will say hi to you first. And our superhost will be happy to help you settle in.

7. I sometimes get random Meetup messages from people. How do I avoid that?

Meetup allows members to message each other. Organizers cannot control that. However, there are ways to avoid unwanted messages. One way is to go to your account settings and disable messages from other members. The other is to BLOCK someone from messaging you. If the message is beyond a harmless hello, please forward that message to the Organizers or Meetup and we can BAN them from the group or platform.

8. Who gets the money for ticket sales?

The event ticket price is collected by the Organizers. As part of our goal to connect people and create great events, we do all the legwork of meeting venue managers, negotiate the space and drink specials. We also promote our events in multiple platforms so that we can get a good, fun crowd to our events. Our ticket prices are minimal usually starting at $5 - $10 with early bird prices and specials, so it is best to buy your tickets early and save!
