Why the New “Starting Soon” Search Filter is a Game Changer

The “starting soon” search filter allows you to find and attend an online Meetup event at a moment’s notice.

At some point in the last year, we’ve all felt what it’s like to be at a loss for activities: you’re up to date on all your podcasts, the cupboard is overflowing with homemade banana bread, and every jigsaw puzzle you own has been completed. Online events are the answer! Instead of watching Bridgerton for the thousandth time, log on to Meetup and meet people, learn a skill, complete a workout, or quiet your mind at a virtual meditation.

Now, Meetup makes it easy to find and attend online events that are happening in real-time or that are starting soon.

Select the “Starting soon” search filter to find events happening in real-time

  • Navigate to https://www.meetup.com/find
  • Click the time filter to change “Any day” to “Starting soon”
  • See all the events happening at the moment or will be starting within the hour. 

More than 15,000 online events take place on Meetup every day. Try something spontaneous and catch an event that’s starting soon.
