Hey ReFi fam! 👋
On February 14th, ReFi Spring officially merged with ReFi DAO, becoming its Event Organizers Guild. During its first season, ReFi Spring supported the organization of 27 ReFi events and, until now, has received 130+ applications. One thing has become clear - the interest in organizing ReFi events has grown exponentially.
The power of IRL events to sow the seeds of regeneration worldwide is huge, and it needs the support of this incredible community to reach every corner of our planet. 🌱
That’s where Event Organizers Guild emerges.
In this blog post, we’ll cover some key points:
1. What is the ReFi Event Organizers Guild
2. When is the Guild opening its doors
3. What can you expect
4. How to get involved
Let’s go! 🚀
Friends, we present you the ReFi Event Organizers Guild 🗺️
Imagine a place where event organizers, organizations and newcomers can find support and the opportunity to coordinate globally around the planning of ReFi events.
