This Meetup Group is about creating a Meetup where people who are interested in trying to understand the near future of marketing and retail e-commerce can meet face to face to share ideas, opinions, demo's and discussion, in order to help each other reach conclusions on these topics that are useful for their professional lives.
* Who should join:
Our ideal members are people who work in roles related to Marketing or Retail or E-commerce and are interested in how those areas are going to change in the next 12-24 months driven by new consumer trends, new data insights, new technology and how those are responded to by businesses and organisations.

The Meetup Group is mostly for learning new and useful information around the near future of marketing and /orretail e-commerce. We will facilitate that learning through face to face meetings where professionals can share their ideas, experiences, opinions and demo's if they choose. We'll try to make it fun along the way.
* What members can expect:
Typical activities with our Meetups will be: after a little relaxed networking, we'll usually start with an informal and fun presentation from an expert on these topics, from many different areas. This will be followed by a facilitated Q&A sessions. Presenters will be encouraged to bring and show fun demo's where possibly, ideally ones that attendees can "try out", if they wish. We'll wrap up with more informal networking. Drinks and snacks will be provided for the earliest attendees at each event.

Our Meetups will facilitate relationships between members because they will be able to meet like minded professionals in a relaxed and attractive venue to exchange ideas and opinions. The event will be facilitated to ensure the most effective use of everyone's time.
