Swedish Beers is back in Barcelona for MWC 2019!

The team is busy getting organised for this year’s edition of Swedish Beers in Barcelona! We loved Muy Buenas and its fab team so much last year that we’ve booked in with them again.

The format will be just the same – a relaxed evening, no formalities, no presentations. Just come with an open mind, be prepared to see friends old and new, chat, enjoy a drink or three (courtesy of our sponsors) and have yourself a good time all whilst extolling (or not) the virtues of our mobile connected world.

The Swedish Beers crew will be on hand to welcome you as usual and we’ll have the friendliest bar staff in town in we’re in one of the most stylish and historic bars in town on two floors. Muy Buenas will also have food available to buy on the night. Here are the photos from previous years’ events to give you a flavour of what to expect.

Tell your friends and get yourself registered.

Start time: 7pm onwards. We’re open until late but there is no admission after 1am.

Location: Bar Muy Buenas, Carrer Carme 63.

**Two sponsors confirmed. But we need more to make the party really fly. If you’d like to sponsor and join the fun and get to meet and mingle with the crowd, please get in touch with Helen to discuss. All budgets catered for.** 

See you in Barcelona.

Win an expo ticket for #MWC19 from our friends at Trustonic!

*Update 18/2/19* Our first winners have been picked and contacted. However, Trustonic has given me a couple more passes to give away so I’m keeping the competition open until Thursday 21 February at 9.00 GMT so you still have time to enter round 2.

If you’re after an exhibition ticket for this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona we have at least two to give away courtesy of our friends at Trustonic. Save yourself Euro 799 and enter our free competition.

Just answer a simple question and fill in your details here and leave the rest to us. Closing date is Monday 18 February 2019 at midday GMT. Good luck and see you in Barcelona!

Swedish Beers Barcelona 2018 Wrap Up: The thank yous, the photos and next events

What a fab time we had at Swedish Beers a couple of weeks back in Barcelona. Admittedly, the weather wasn’t up to much, but Muy Buenas gave us a very warm welcome despite us drinking the bar dry and having to have an emergency beer and wine delivery at midnight!

First up some thank yous:

To Carolina and her team at Muy Buenas for looking after us so well.

To Rosa, Patrick, Irene, Ida and Angel for being the welcoming committee with me at the door.

To Erika Arias for her fabulous photographs once again. Check out more of her fabulous photos here.

To all our sponsors for providing the cash for the beer tokens and being such good co-hosts on the night. They are – Equal Experts, x-Mobility, Headforwards, 51 Degrees, Evernym, 1NCE ably supported in cash and in kind by NOBA, Kairos Future, ZZZ Accommodation, Idka, White Bull Summits, Trustonic, Joshua PR, When in Barcelona and Claire Coombes.

And to all of you who came and who keep the Swedish Beers spirit alive and kicking.

Next events:

The next Swedish Beers event will be in London but I haven’t yet fixed a date as I need to co-ordinate sponsors. If you’d like to sponsor, get in touch by email here.

In the meantime, you may want to pop along to the panel session I’m chairing in London on Wednesday 21 March 2018 where we’re discussing what we discovered at this year’s Mobile World Congress. Panellists include Paul Stringer who heads up the mobile team at Equal Experts and Priya Prakash who is the founder of D4SC and is also one of the UK Government’s DIT Technology Specialists.

Tickets are free and tapas and drinks are courtesy of Equal Experts. RSVP required. You can do that by registering for a ticket below or by clicking here to reach the Eventbrite page.
