Why the Glasgow Gathering? Well...
Since 2005, every two months internet marketers from the UK and beyond have met for a networking lunch run by Martin Avis in a top London hotel - followed by an afternoon and evening of chatting about their favourite topic.
As Martin puts it: "The people who come are at all levels of experience, from the 'haven't quite started yet' beginners right up to long-established, full-time internet millionaires. Everyone fits right in and everyone has fun."
And he might have added: the started-a-long-time-ago but still-haven't-got-anywhere "veteran newbies", of which there are many more than each member of that group thinks!
Martin's event is brilliant, but it has one drawback for many of us living in the northern UK: unless you can fit it in with other plans, it's usually "too far away".
So in May 2015, almost exactly ten years after the first small group gathered around a table in the heart of the southern capital, it's northern counterpart "The Glasgow Gathering" came into being.
The "Magnificent Seven" who attended that inaugural gathering in the Merchant City of central Glasgow were delighted with the contacts, motivation and ideas that they got from it.
They couldn't wait for the next one - and that's how you'll feel when you attend YOUR first Glasgow Gathering!
