About Meet People Chicago

Meet People Chicago was founded in 2014 under the premise that meeting people should be fun and easy. In addition MPC believe in getting out of the house and exploring the great city of Chicago. MPC has created hundreds of events, visited scores of venues and explored many of Chicago's neighborhoods while connecting thousands of people. With a fun and lively superhost in attendance at every party whose job is to provide a comfortable atmosphere, strangers become friends and more at our events.

Peter Shen

Founder

A few years back, Peter wondered why it was so hard to meet people. Despite the plethora of online sites and apps, connecting people seemed more difficult, not easier. Being a gregarious guy and a want for new challenges, he decided to do an experiment; create a social group of strangers and turn them into friends.

Three years later, thousands of people have connected, hundreds have met their good friends, and more than a handful have even gotten married. The experiment worked, the phenomenon was created.

Today, Peter leads a core of dedicated believers to expand his vision of connecting people. You can still find him at most MPC events. Go ahead and say hi. He’ll be happy to meet you.

  • "Meet People is a fantastic social group. I was brand new to Chicago in June (knowing all of 2-3 people), and decided to give it a try after being here for five days. The people are friendly, fun and it's pretty easy to just bounce around meeting new people. I HIGHLY recommend you give this group a try if you're on the fence. Peter does a fantastic job organizing, and it's always good to get out and explore/drink in new areas of Chicago with people just looking to have a good time."
