From Idea to Reality: The Inception Story of the Marketing Enthusiast Community (MEC)

The Creation and Early Days

In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Marketing Enthusiast Community (MEC) was born in Surabaya. We started small, aiming to connect local marketers. At first, things were slow. But we didn't give up! We moved to Jakarta, a city with more potential.

We believed MEC could be something special, so we built a team of amazing people. We faced challenges and doubts, but we stuck together, determined to make MEC a success.

Our first offline event in Jakarta was tough. We had a small team, no sponsors, and a tight budget. Finding a venue was like solving a puzzle!

But we didn't give up! We were persistent, creative, and determined. We overcame every obstacle, and MEC grew stronger with each challenge.

Today, MEC is a thriving community with members from managerial, head-of-department to director-level positions across various companies. We're a place for marketers to learn, network, and grow together.

We're proud to be Indonesia's leading marketing community. Our success is built on shared belief, teamwork, and a relentless drive to achieve our goals. Our journey has been amazing, and we're excited for what the future holds!

Marketing directors from various industry have joined MEC, making us a leader in the industry. Our story of collaboration and growth continues to inspire!
