Practical series meeting schedule:
5:00 - 6:30 Networking Happy Hour
6:30 - 8:00 Presentation with Q/A
8:00 - 9:00 Rookie's Networking After Party
My suggestion, arrive early and avoid the traffic. There is a free co-working space on the first floor at The Frontier which you can use until 5PM. When that closes, on Thursday there is a happy hour event you can attend. Have a beer and network with other people from around the Triangle. The presentation will begin promptly at 6:30, so don't be late. Q/A will wrap up by 8PM, but you don't have to go home. Continue the conversation at Rookie's Sports Bar only 6 min away in RTP (4911 Central Park Dr).
If you cannot attend the networking events before or after the meeting, feel free to drop in for the presentation from 6:30 - 8:00.
Arrive early, have a beer and join the networking event. If you prefer to stay late, a group typically goes out for drinks after. If you want to have a great evening with other SEO marketers, join us for both.
