While Meetup.com™ is free for group members, all organizers are required to pay a monthly fee in order to organize their groups. There is no way to create a group on Meetup.com™ for free. You can read more about the specific fees on the Meetup.com pricing page.
A Meetup.com™ organizer with a group of just 10 members, is required to pay $120 per year. That’s a pretty big fee for such a small group. And if you have more than 50 members in your group? Nearly $180 a year. All for a platform that isn’t user friendly and doesn’t provide reliable tech support.
Consider this: Here at Meeting Star, our simple, easy-to-use platform is 100% free to use for groups up to 250 people, and just $49 annually for larger groups. Plus, you will love the elegant public group and event pages, and our excellent customer service. Meeting Star is built by organizers, for organizers.
Whether you are on our free or paid plan, you have access to unlimited events, unlimited co-organizers and unlimited everything else we have to offer. Yes, we’re serious.
So, if you want to organize a group for free on Meetup.com™ you’re out of luck. But if you’re looking for a great place to start and grow your group, give Meeting Star a try. You won’t be disappointed!
