Organize a user group
Here's a complete guide to organizing meetups.
We know that people enjoy giving back to the communities they care about, so we've created this guide to help you get started on your path to starting a user group.
Host a meetup
We’re always looking for places to host our meetups. If your company, coworking space, or startup accelerator is available for Elastic community members to meet, please contact us. Your facilities don't need to be fancy — we're looking for a comfortable vibe, projector, screen, chairs, and a place to serve refreshments. Host an Elastic meetup.
Elastic event support
We'll make sure you're ready to rock your event by setting you up with:
- A box of goodies for your meetup that includes t-shirts, stickers, and other swag for your attendees
- A budget for refreshments
- Connections to interested speakers and hosts
- Promotions for your event on our website, blog, and social media channels
We have special gifts for our volunteer organizers, too. Thank you for all you do to grow and nurture our community.
Building Elastic communities
The global Elastic community runs on local time. Current Elastic community organizers share how they were inspired (including some tips and tricks) to start local user groups.
