The Marketing Meetup: Torbay is a positive and non-salesy group for the brilliant marketers of Torbay to come together, listen and learn.
Events run once a month and feature two expert speakers, talking stuff about marketing, or at the very least tangential to marketing. All this is bookended by the most informal and happy networking you will ever come across.
There are three values that unite us: listening over shouting, saying hello to everyone, and being positively lovely (that's all about giving first, and treating people as people - not job titles).
We're part of the larger community known as 'The Marketing Meetup', which has positively lovely events across the UK for astonishing marketeers. Podcasts, blog posts, our closed Facebook group and all our other events can be found at themarketingmeetup.com
Anyone is welcome to come along, as you come to listen, are prepared to say hello and be positively lovely :).
The Torbay Marketing Meetup is an informal, friendly place for the marketers of Torbay to meet, learn, and share knowledge with one another. Come in 'listen' not 'sell' mode :)
Our Brilliant, Buzzing Bay!
Torbay is an incredibly vibrant environment for businesses, with marketing opportunities for local people and visitors all around us. At our inaugural meet up, we'll explore some innovative marketing channels that showcase our reach, our campaigns and our capabilities as a marketing community -- within our beautiful bay and beyond.
Jenny Bindon, TEDxTorquay Event organiser and radio host at Riviera FM -- home of #TorbayHour -- will be talking about these unique marketing channels and how you can leverage them to reach local people in a totally new way!

Anna Trant from AT Events will walk us through the England's Seafood FEAST Campaign plan from funding and channel selection through positioning and execution of the event! Including the all-important results of the campaign and learnings for future events.

Please let your marketing friends and colleagues know about this group too, I hope to build it into a great resource for the community over the coming months and years. Attendance will be taken at this event. If you RSVP 'Yes' and then do not come, you will receive a strike. Three strikes and you're outta here! This is simply a measure to allow appropriate respect to the organisers, speakers, sponsors, and your fellow community members :)
See you there!
