Hosting Web3 meetups and events is an important way of gathering people with similar interests in one location to share ideas and innovations and foster collaboration among themselves and the blockchain community.
Web3 meetups effectively bridge the gap between virtual and physical space, allowing enthusiasts with similar interests to share their experiences and knowledge. Meetups are also an excellent way for brands to obtain collaborations and partnerships for their projects and campaigns.
The OffChain Vancouver Meetup
Speaking of meetups, the OffChain Vancouver Meetup took place on September 15th, 2023 bringing together 140 attendees with diverse backgrounds but united by a common passion for Web3 and blockchain technology. The event, part of the larger OffChain Global network, aimed to provide a platform for networking, sharing insights, and making meaningful connections in the Web3 space.
OffChain is a global community for Web3 professionals and enthusiasts to relax, discuss the latest happenings, and meet and connect with like-minded people. The Vancouver meetup saw attendees from a broad spectrum of the Web3 community, from blockchain developers, crypto VCs, miners, and quant traders to those who own a bit of Bitcoin. This mix of cultures, backgrounds, and expertise stimulated discussions and knowledge sharing.
Giveaway.com was well-represented as a co-host and sponsor of the event, alongside other esteemed Web 3.0 initiatives, including And-Co, ICP.Hub North America, Hibiki Run, X Winner, ETH Vancouver, SFU Blockchain & AI Club, Blockchain @UBC, and several Web3 enthusiasts were in attendance at the OffChain Vancouver event.
Highlights of the Event
There were several key moments from the meetup, with every minute providing a unique opportunity for individuals to connect with like-minded individuals in their sector, learn about new technologies, and gain exposure to the latest trends in the industry.
The event started with a riveting keynote address from an industry leader who touched on the current trends, challenges, and prospects of the blockchain and Web3 space. The speech highlights creating a more vibrant and diverse ecosystem that drives the growth and adoption of Web 3.0 technologies by bringing together developers, entrepreneurs, investors, and other stakeholders.
Attendees could also mingle and network with other enthusiasts and professionals, allowing for the exchange of ideas, experiences, and potential collaborations. The networking opportunity would not have been complete without cool music playing in the background, food, and drinks providing a relaxed and enjoyable environment for attendees to connect further.
The major highlight of the event was the Giveaway hosted by Giveaway.com, the strategic partner with OffChain Vancouver for this event, where all event attendees had the chance to win free items as a token for attending the event.
First, each attendee received an Onchain Achievement Token (OAT) on Giveaway.com as a “Thank You for Attending” token. This one-of-a-kind token is a digital reminder of their participation in the OffChain Vancouver Meetup.
Furthermore, giftcards and 'X Winner' pins were distributed among other attendees who participated in the raffle draw via Giveaway.com. With our lucky giveaway function, attendees simply had to complete the giveaway tasks, which included following the sponsors on Twitter and joining OffChain Vancouver’s community.
The draw for the lucky winner selection was timed for two and a half hours, so after the time elapsed, the winners were announced.
One lucky participant won a $25 Starbucks gift card; 10 other people won 'X Winner pins'; and, as mentioned earlier, all other participants won OATs. All of these helped to spice up the event with some fun and keep the sponsor brands in the minds of the attendees, as the prizes were distributed manually after the event.
