Circling the City of Lights!

I’m Javier, Marketing Manager at CircleMe,

Last week we organized some CircleMe drinks in beautiful Paris.. and we have to say that we had a blast!
We arrived around 5pm at our chosen location, which in this case was Le Dernier Bar Avant La Find Du Monde (French for ‘The Last Bar Before the End of the World’.) We loved the place, as it was full of passionate people. The place had many different themes, including an Indiana Jones one!

Le Dernier Bar – Where we hosted our Paris CircleMe Drinks

At 6pm the guests started to arrive, and so we started to talk about CircleMe, Paris, and about our passions! Some talked about performing arts, others about technology, music… Time flew, people came and went as we weren’t only meeting people passionate about CircleMe, but also enjoying a great time with them!

One interesting thing about the users at the meet up is that there were so many different nationalities. There were CircleMe users from France (of course), Brazil, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Russia, America and Mexico! This showed just how metropolitan the city of Paris is 🙂

Time passed by so quickly that at around 11pm we realized we hadn’t taken any group photos! So we assembled the remaining Circlers for a last minute photo! 😉

Ooops! We forgot to take a group photo until 11pm, when many had left :- (

Overall, we had a great, great time thanks to the great Circlers who visited us, the location chosen for the bar and, well… the city itself! So we can now officially claim that we have ‘Circled’ Paris! And here is proof of that!

We Circled Paris! ;- )

We would like to send a big, big thank you to all those who joined us! And if you would like to join our future meetups, follow us on Twitter and Facebook for future announcements 😉

All roads lead to the CircleMe meet up in Rome

After the great success of the meet ups in London and Milan, we decided to say ‘Hi’ to our users in Rome! We love these occasions as it gives us a chance to chat to lots of different Circlers, get some great feedback, and give out some T shirts of course 🙂

The venue for the meet up, the Casa Del Jazz, Rome

The venue we met at was the brilliant Casa Del Jazz, everyone started to meet up at 7pm and we got talking about the site, about the venue, about anything! One CircleMe user was so excited about the event that he arrived half an hour early! As well as this, 2 of our lovely users drove all the way from Pisa to attend, which is over a 3 hour drive!

As you can see, everyone had a great time!

This was a great chance for users to meet some of the other members of CircleMe, and we certainly enjoyed chatting with everyone. Our CEO Giuseppe D’Antonio and office manager Elena Ciampella helped organize the event, so they had the pleasure of handing out T shirts! Along with the immensely popular CircleMe T shirts, we also had some fantastic goody bags to give out from JazzIt, whom we arranged the meet up with. Every CircleMe user who turned up got a magazine and a cool jazz CD, thanks guys! After the meet up we went on to get something to eat, eventually saying ‘Goodbye’ around 2am!
