Here is what I believe when it comes to marketing bitshares via meetup.
1. Select your target market
If you are in Cote des Neige, I would suggest targeting foreign university students who use remittances services.
2. Have a product to put in their hands
The majority of people don't care about how Paypal work, they use it because they need it. If you have a mobile wallet you can showcase, help them open an account, register and then trade among each other, have a cheatsheet ready on how to fund their account, etc.
This way they have a real life experience and are more likely to actually use the tech. (I didn't understand bitcoin until I used it)
Connecting a product with a problem they have is the way we will get real new users.
It would be plenty to fill your time.
