As a thought exercise consider this. Company A offers the space for
the meetup. On the day of the meetup the host ensures that there is
adequate material/swag/branding available that provide a guidance to
"available opportunities", "how to apply" etc. And if you stop and
think about it, this is not too far fetched. For example, at my day
job, the external facing areas have branding material which make it
easy to identify with specific projects/products.

Asking companies to create anechoic chambers as a pre-condition for
hosting is somewhat untenable.

How often is that used to be a platform for opportunities within the
Python community?

A question in turn (although it is poor form to respond to a question
with another) - why does Bangpyper want to get anything in return of
the stated objective is "sharing and discussing about Python"?
