How to start a weekly (or monthly) Couchsurfing Meeting!

Step 1:

Find a restaurant, bar or public space that:
(a) Has no cover (is free to enter)
(b) Charges no ‘drink minimum’ (people are not required to pay for a certain number of drinks)
(c) Has the space for a group of Couchsurfers to hangout!

Step 2:

Create the event on Couchsurfing

Step 3:

Add the event details.

Event Name: you can call it a meeting, a meet-up or more specific to the activity (hiking, Italian dinner, etc.)

Where: Choose the location of the event. If the location doesn’t show up, you can just write the city and then include a google map link in the description.

When: Choose the start time and end time. Make sure you arrive by the start time! Some Couchsurfers are punctual!

Event Recurrence: You can make the event recur every week, every two weeks (bi-weekly), or every month. Or just make it a one time event and leave the box unchecked!

Limit Attendees: If the space has a limited number of places, make sure you mark this. It will keep more than the allowed number of people from joining the event.

Description: Describe the event! Let people know what they’re in for!

After you click ‘Create Event’ you can add a photo.

Step 4:

Now that the event is created, you can invite friends, edit details, and add comments to provide attendees more details or alert them to changes!

Step 5:
