If anyone wants to grab a drink and talk shop somewhere downtown, we can set up a couple informal Marketo hangouts in between now and the late-August date that is apparently targeted for the first MUG meeting.
I'm the marketing technology lead @ Centerline in downtown Raleigh, and have previously been marketing automation manager in a couple B2B hardware and software companies. Super interested in hearing good/bad experiences with certain third-party vendors; right now I'm on a predictive analytics kick, and want to narrow down the field a little bit before I do vendor selection.
Also volunteering my workplace as a potential meeting location. We have a bar in our lounge, so that's always a plus, but fighting the traffic after work can be a bear since we're right downtown.
