All hail the Chief(s)! A report from the European Mega Wazers Meet-upin Paris...

This past weekend, we gathered our top users across Europe for our very first Mega Wazers Meet up – check out a few of our Waze royalty arriving to the event, above. Four Waze team members were joined by over 20 of the most active users in Europe, representing communities in France, The Netherlands, Hungary, Czech Republic, England, Scotland and Italy - including the world's #1 Wazer, asterix06.

So, why'd we gather our top users together? 'Cause the Waze driving community is truly the heart of what we do, and it was important for us to hear some face-to-face feedback from the people who know our product the best and spend the most time contributing to their local driving communities.

Overall, it was a great success. We got important insight into what's on the mind of our top contributors and got a chance to fill them in on what's going on over here at Waze, as well as our plans for the future. We also saw how important it is for us to maintain direct communication with these top contributors and hope to have other meet-ups, for other communities around the world, in the future.

French user, Jabou, live tweeted the event, so if you'd like to see his tweets, you can search Twitter with the hashtag #wazemeet to see updates from the event. Thanks also to Dave Langley for his great documentation, above and below! :) More pics found on our FB page, here.
