This is a weekly newsletter for Podcast Movement event and community updates.
We're ONE MONTH AWAY FROM EVOLUTIONS!
Can you believe it? This time next month, thousands of you will be with us in Vegas, talking shop, learning a lot, meeting dozens of exhibitors and service providers, testing podcast equipment, plus maybe even doing a little partying.
But before that, we've got more details about what's going on at Evolutions next month, so let's get to it.
PM EVENT NEWS
Find Your People at Evolutions
Each year, Podcast Movement has always been the best place in the world to meet up with other podcasters and podcast industry professionals. This year at Evolutions 2023, we're taking it up a notch with our official Community Meetups.
What's a Community Meetup, you ask? Community Meetups are hosted by event attendees, have a focused topic or area of interest, and will show up on the official event schedule so that other attendees can join up.
These are informal and can take place in a hotel bar, restaurant, or even in one of our dedicated spaces inside the Evolutions Expo Hall.
