Shopify Meetup Event!

We’re thrilled to be hosting our first, very own Shopify Meetup!

If you own an online business, or if you’re looking to start an online business, make your way to Birmingham’s creative quarter and totter into the Custard Factory’s very own Mockingbird Theatre and Bar at 6pm on August 11th.


We believe that talking to, listening to and discussing topics with other people in the e-commerce industry is incredibly important for learning. What better way to get inspired than to hear the thoughts, opinions and experiences of others? How else will you move forward with your store without exploiting the knowledge of experts? Because of these precise reasons, we’ve decided to organise our own Shopify Meetup and help fuel the growth and expansion of e-commerce businesses in the West Midlands.

Our First Meetup
Here at Shopify Builder, we’ve been discussing the potential of hosting a Shopify Meetup for quite a while but have struggled to find the perfect time. However, having just spread our wings and fluttered over to New York to open an office, we thought that now was as good a time as any to host our first (of hopefully many!) Shopify Meetups.

Guest Speakers
For this very special night, we have a series of guest speakers who are experts in the field of Shopify and e-commerce. Equipped and ready to answer your questions and give some incredible insights to help you and your store, our experts will cover a range of useful topics which we hope will be applicable and relevant to all of our guests. Not only is this Meetup a fantastic opportunity to gain a wealth of Shopify knowledge, our Meetup will provide all guests with the chance to network with other local businesses and experts.

Free Food & Drinks
Just as importantly, is the fact that we’ll be offering complimentary food and drinks to nourish and stimulate the entrepreneurial minds of our guests throughout the evening – if that’s not incentive enough, we don’t know what is!

Want to Come Along?
We would love for you to come and join us for what will be a truly fantastic evening of Shopify based antics so please click on the button below to register and book your place. Please note that if you do not register in advance, you won’t be able to attend and we hate turning people away – don’t make us be the bad guys…

We can’t wait to see you!
