Well, it seems to me that London was ready for a Swedish Beers night after all! It was a great night and a big thank you to all of you who joined in the fun. Many beers were supped and much mobile fat was chewed.
Kudos and a big thank you to our generous sponsors Millennial Media and Eagle Eye Solutions for the free drinks. They were joined by folks from all areas of the industry and far too many to name check them all - but included Vodafone, Openmarket, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, Google/Android, Motorola, Mippin, BSkyB, We Love Mobile, BD Network, IPC Media, Ixonos, ITV, FT Conferences, Mindings, Digital Youth Project, MEF, Mobile Marketing Magazine, Disruptive Analysis, Brands2Life, IF, Speed Communications, Somo Agency, TeePee Games, BCM Solutions, Inspiring Interns, Propel London, Openfeint, Carrington Knight, Mobext, Telefonica, Clickslide, MePlease, PaperBag, Diary.com, Arcana Solutions, Closertag, Blippar, Zoonou, Dunnhumby, Bossa Studios, Bango, Miyowa, COI, In-Mobi, Longreach Mobile, Nuance and many, many more. It was great to see some familiar faces and to welcome new friends too. And I’m pretty sure there were a few sore heads in the morning.
And a *special* thank you to everyone involved in getting this particular show on the road, especially Jenny Hiley from We Love Mobile for being the catalyst to make the party happen again in London and for her help on the night alongside James Norris from Social Media Strategist, (who took all the photos), Gabriel Ortiz from Clickslide and student, Sofiana Dewi, and all the bar staff who did a great job of looking after us.
And when’s the next one, I hear you ask…?
It’s our 10th birthday in October, yes TEN YEARS!! And subject to sponsorship, we’ll be doing a birthday bash. And again, subject to sponsorship, the annual party in Barcelona during Mobile World Congress. Get in touch if you’re interested in sponsoring.
And a quick reminder about those generous sponsors on Wednesday night…
Millennial Media is a a mobile advertising platform whose mission is to cut through the clutter and deliver real results on mobile for clients. And they’re doing pretty well at it with around 142 million global mobile customers in over 250 countries across more than 10,000 sites and applications. Oh, and that covers over 5,500 mobile devices. That’s some reach. Oh, and a bunch of happy clients and partners to boot.
Eagle Eye Solutions is all about mobilising retail. They have a very neat mobile couponing and redemption solution that makes use of existing Credit Card Terminals and EPoS technology so you don’t have to change your systems. Working with the likes of High Street retailers like Oasis and Comet, maybe you could be next.
