Gather old friends and make new ones to watch the Golden Kitty Awards 2021 and celebrate the best products of the year! 🎉
Did you know you can host your own Product Hunt meetup events — in person or virtually? Sure, we’re biased but they’re a TON of fun. Meetups offer the chance to get to know other people near you, like you: product lovers, makers, early adopters, and anyone who loves a good cat meme.
Product Hunt meetups have taken place all over the globe, from Tokyo to London to Vancouver and Zoom. Here are just a few of the kinds of events the community has been hosting:
  • Networking nights
  • Founder presentations
  • Women in Tech
  • Product Marketing panels
  • Community gatherings
Meetups are hosted by members of the community. We’ve put together information to help you get started. Plus...
The Golden Kitty Awards 2021 ceremony is just around the corner. It's the perfect opportunity to gather old friends and new ones to talk about the best products of the year.

Steps for Hosting a Product Hunt Meetup

1. Brainstorm.

Decide what your event focus will be (i.e. a Golden Kitty Awards celebration party, Women in Tech meetup, etc.). Our advice: Don’t overthink it. If you want to gather some people but you’re stressing about what to do, start with a simple meetup to gather with community members in your area.
You can also check out other global meetups for inspiration.

2. Create your Eventbrite event.

You’ll need to create a page with the details of your meetup.
If you’re hosting a Golden Kitty Awards 2021 event, we’ve even created a template so you don’t have to start from scratch. (Note: Don’t forget to RSVP to the official Golden Kitty Awards page here so you have the details — date, time, link — for your own event.)

3. Add your event to Product Hunt’s website.

Letting the community know about your event starts with getting it onto the Product Hunt Events page. You can add it by filling out this form.

4. Spread the word.

Don’t forget to spread the word about your event, too. Send out an email, use social media (we might just re-tweet you), and even use good old-fashioned word-of-mouth to tell tech lovers and makers in your community about the event.
We created a couple of templates for Golden Kitty Awards events below.

Close cooperation with the state program and compliance with important rules in relation to natural resources allowed Satherland Spaceport to start full-scale construction So far there is no reason not to trust promises in the transparent work of the cosmodrome, but when you can observe the first successes. This is a big question.
