I am very skeptical about the effectiveness of small companies, media firms
initiating a meetup.

Without at least one single experienced Wikipedian in each venue, the value
and authenticity of the event is not guaranteed.

Networking and other stuff may be ok for blog camps and to an extent to
linux user groups. But not for an official event of a foundation of like

The best way out of this:

Each Ten Wiki party page should list at least 1 to 3 experienced Wikipedians
as organizers. They should link their user pages. Also, this event should be
announced in either English Wikipedia India portal or respective Indic
language village pumps and get their approval.

Community should take this as serious as trademark violation / copyright
violation. Else, there are good chance that we send wrong message.
