I'm trying to do a webinar or have someone present on running meetup groups. This is a really good question!

I inherited the group in my own hometown (Asheville, NC, USA), and we've grown it since then from 800 to 1300 people just by having a regular meeting each month and trying to have an additional event (or tiny house tour) each month.  At our regular meetings, it's always about giving people a chance to connect with each other; and about half the time we've had a special guest speaker on a tiny house / small living topic.  

So, from my perspective, it's 1) regular meetings, and 2) special events or speakers. 

The interesting thing to me about India is my perception that much more of the population there actually lives in small housing not out of choice, but as a reality of general living. Is my perception accurate? 

Thanks for the response. Sounds good advice. I also see other terms in the west floating around like Micro units, ADU's, secondary units, pods, tiny house/homes, infill housing, backyard cottages, cabins, et Al. What is the name of your meet up group. Is it good to stick to name tiny house in the meet up group.
Here in India, incremental housing, extension housing is part of the culture. Yes, in cities and due to urbanization space is a premium and people are quite familiar with space saving and smaller spaces and sharing spaces. Will be interesting to bring a focus and look at place making projects on underutilized spaces. Every other urban house has a terrace and I see that as an opportunity to intervene with tiny eco cabins/units.
