Registration now open for Swedish Beers London!

swedish beers london may14Hurrah! Your favourite mobile networking party is back in London to bring you more beer and more chat! You’ll find the party at the Victoria Park Plaza Hotel from 6.30pm onwards on Monday 19th May.

The first sponsor is confirmed - that's our friends at Open Mobile Summit. You may have met them at the Barcelona party in February as they had a lot of beer tokens! They enjoyed meeting you so much that they're sponsoring the party again and that means we have a new, bigger location. We're going to be at the Victoria Park Plaza Hotel and the delegates at the Open Mobile Summit will be joining us too so there'll be a good mix of familiar faces and new friends. Don't worry, the party is still free to attend, it just means we have more room, and with a bit of luck, more beer too.

You can sponsor too!

I'm looking for more sponsors so talk to your FD, your CEO or whoever holds the budget and see if you can't join in the fun too on 19th May. Just like Barcelona, I'm offering some Start-Up specials as well and if you really fancy splashing the cash, there are combined Open Mobile Summit & Swedish Beers sponsorship packages. Get in touch with me to find out more.

Like our previous events, this is a relaxed evening, no formalities, no presentations, no business cards thrust in your face as soon as you arrive. Just come with an open mind, be prepared to see friends old and new, talk nonsense, enjoy a drink or five and have yourself a good time. Oh, and leave the ties, the corporate personas and the sales spiel at the door please. The Swedish Beers crew will be on hand to welcome you and the lovely people at Open Mobile Summit and the Victoria Park Plaza have promised to look after us well.
No need to RSVP unless you want to. There's no guest list, no tickets and there's no guaranteed entry. Just come and go as you please.

I've checked the Wi-Fi and it works and even though we're one floor down, the mobile signal seems to be good too so you'll be able to demo your latest mobile thing whilst enjoying your beer and a chat. We'll have the usual beer tokens and if they run out, we'll revert to a pay bar. There is a smoking area to the left of the main entrance of the hotel and is well signposted.

So let me introduce our first sponsors....

Open Mobile Media

I’m  delighted to welcome Open Mobile Media again to sponsor the London edition of Swedish Beers. As part of their sponsorship, they're giving away 10 Gold Passes to their upcoming Open Mobile Summit. It's free to enter the competition and the closing date is 23:59 on Thursday 1 May 2014. More information over on the Swedish Beers blog and click here to fill in the entry form.

You don’t have to register, but if you do, you’ll get a handy email reminder of the time, date and location. And it will also give me an idea of how many are coming and keep our sponsors happy.

Looking forward to catching up with you all

Welcoming Open Mobile Media as our lead sponsor

Lead festival sponsor: Open Mobile Media
I’m delighted to welcome Open Mobile Media as the festival’s lead sponsor this year. It’s their first time in Barcelona and they’re very excited to be joining the fun. They connect the most influential and the most innovative companies and individuals in the converging mobile, internet, media, advertising, electronics and commerce markets. They deliver news, insights and C-level events to help executives and businesses who are part of the mobile ecosystem succeed and expand.
They’re a seriously friendly bunch and the whole team are heading to Barcelona to scope out interesting people for their upcoming events in London and San Francisco as well as getting the lowdown on what’s happening in the industry from the people who matter – i.e. You! You’ll be able to mix and mingle with them at Swedish Beers. It’s well worth looking them up there as they’re the ones with the most beer tokens and I hope you give them a warm welcome on the night.
Skål!

Announcing aql and Adjust

It really warms the cockles of my heart to welcome back sponsors year after year. And that’s exactly what I’m doing here now. When you get to Swedish Beers next week, you’ll need to keep your eyes open for the sponsors as they’re the ones with the free beer tokens. Go find them, and you’ll have free drinks!

In case you haven’t met them before, may I introduce (drum roll please) aql and Adjust.

aql is sponsoring us once again. Adam and his team will be on hand to chew the fat with you and generally make sure you have a lovely time. Who is aql ? Well they’re award-winning messaging specialists: They integrate mobile messaging and voice communications into your existing business processes. It just works. They have a rather fabulous data centre too in Leeds in a converted Methodist Church. That means you can also colocate securely in their datacentre (it is like Fort Knox in there!). They serve over a quarter of the FTSE100 and are as happy to work with SMEs as they are large corporates and public sector. They really are one of the friendliest bunch of people you could hope to meet and they really do know their mobile stuff – and not just the stuff they do. They really understand your business too.

 

ADJUST_byADEVEN_Logo4You may remember Adeven from last year’s Swedish Beers party and the one we held in Berlin last summer (the beer garden was lovely!). Well, they’ve rebranded as Adjust. They’ll tell you much more about it at Swedish Beers. Wanna talk analytics? Adjust.io is the way to go.

Mobile app tracking and analytics company adeven is rebranding to take on the identity of its driver product, adjust which is the leading business intelligence platform for mobile apps. As an official Facebook mobile measurement partner that is also integrated with over 120 other networks worldwide adjust ensures that marketers and publishers know exactly how their app is performing, absolutely anywhere that they choose to market it. Their BI platform displays insightful and actionable metrics on a streamlined dashboard offering key insights into in-app behaviour to reveal any campaigns most promising marketing sources.

Watch out for further sponsor and supporter announcements…

And if you haven’t registered already, or would like more information, then you can do that here.

Swedish Beers–Barcelona Edition 2014 are Go!

swedish beers 2014Oh my goodness, doesn't time fly? Here we are again in February which means only one thing - it's time for Swedish Beers! It’s all systems go for Mobile World Congress and Heroes of the Mobile Fringe. And as part of that, your favourite networking party is back to bring you more beer and more chat.

We do have some lovely sponsors lined up for you but there's room for one or two more if you fancy getting involved. Get in touch with Helen to discuss. There are a couple of start-up special deals available.


Like our previous events, this is a relaxed evening, no formalities, no presentations, no business cards thrust in your face as soon as you arrive. Just come with an open mind, be prepared to see friends old and new, talk nonsense, enjoy a drink or three and have yourself a good time. Oh, and leave the ties, the corporate personas and the sales spiel at the door please. The Swedish Beers crew will be on hand to welcome you as well as the friendliest bar staff in town.


No need to RSVP unless you want to. There's no guest list, no tickets and there's no guaranteed entry. Just come and go as you please. If you do register, it does mean that you can add the event to your calendar and search for it in your email and easily share with friends. Fill in the form below or go direct to the eventbrite page.

It is likely to get a bit busy at times. But don't worry, people will be coming in and out all evening. That’s kind of the point as we know there’s always a lot going on and you might want to check out more than one party. If it's very busy, there's no need to queue to get in. Just check out one of the other bars nearby and come back a little later when it's a bit less frantic.

There is a small cloakroom area at the bar, but it's not secure so leave the laptops in your hotel room or apartment where they will be safe and won't get in anyone's way.


The venue is our favourite haunt with the friendliest bar staff in town, Dos Trece -http://dostrece.net/ We'll be open from 7pm through until the early hours.


So let me introduce our sponsors....
