We took Connect Live to Tokyo!


Since 2016, Local Guides around the world have joined us in San Francisco for an exciting event filled with inspiring talks and fun activities. During the event, attendees learn tips from Googlers, share their own insights, and get advanced access to new features we’re working on. The event has given us the opportunity to celebrate and connect with our global community in-person.


Local Guides in Tokyo showed so much enthusiasm for Connect Live this year that we decided to surprise them with a pop-up event just for them!

We invited Local Guides based on a variety of criteria including level, types of contributions, and activity on Connect.

They listened to a panel discussion from Googlers who work on Maps and got answers to their most pressing questions about the LG program. Afterward, they enjoyed a sake tasting, participated in a food photography workshop, and more! Check out more photos from the event here.

This year, we may show up in your city, too. So, stay tuned!

This is awesome. Would love to see this happening in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and places near this area. You see, there are several people from these countries who got the invitation to attend the past summits and this years Connect Live but couldn't ensure their US-VISA, sadly. This international-political-governmental thing should not keep us away from getting the opportunities to attend these event, right? We deserve this event happening here haha

Meanwhile, there are thousands of regular Local Guides living here too; who contributes on a regular basis on the Google Maps. Therefore, I would humbly suggest to give it a thought.
By the way, I got hope from your last sentence. Hope to see one in my country soon, Bangladesh :D

On a different note, Bangladesh Local Guides Community would be arranging their 100th Meet Up in this year. This would be a great way of celebrating the 100th Meet Up by arranging an event like this one. Please, consider this point @brittym
This would be a really great thing for all the Local Guides from Bangladesh, there are thousands of us here, you know.

Our community of passionate contributors are annually so excited for the Local Guides event in San Francisco that we wanted to try out a smaller-scale event in Tokyo. We may show up in other cities around the world, so stay tuned! Thanks to everyone who has submitted positive feedback and suggestions of places for future pop-ups to take place. The best place for such feedback, however, is the newly launched Idea Exchange. There's even an active thread for ideas around events where voting is open!
