It’s Barcelona, it’s 3GSM, and the Swedish Beers Posse are in town 13th February 2007

Yes, it’s that time of year again when the world’s mobile executives land in Barcelona and take over the city for a few days of obsessing about all things mobile (well the bit by Congress anyway). So, of course, the Swedish Beers Crew will be there too and we'd love you to join us at our little Swedish/Belgian/Norwegian/Spanish Beers Mobile Networking do.

So if you fancy a beer (it’ll be Belgian beer on the night as we're in a Belgian bar just to confuse matters) and a chat and a mingle with the nice Swedish Beers folks, then come along and join in. You don’t have to talk about mobile and you don’t even have to drink beer if you don’t want to, but it would be nice if you were friendly and enjoyed mingling with other friendly folk who have a passing interest in things mobile.

And not only that, there’ll be a few FREE beers as well courtesy of our lovely sponsors Colibria and MyStrands. Alex from Colibria will be around to chat to you about any interesting applications you may have to include in his fabulous IM platform and there will be several MyStranders and we will have partyStrands running during the evening.

Where: Belchica, Villarroel 60, 08011 Barcelona. Entrance on Gran Via de Deputacion. Metro L1 Urguell (so very near Congress) for more info on the bar, and here's a map. We'll be in the back bar.

Tuesday 13th February 2007 6.30pm to 8.30pm

Belgian Beers Tuesday 13th February 2007 in Barca

For one night only we'll be enjoying Belgian rather than Swedish beers during 3GSM in Barcelona. We'll be holding the event at Belchica (hence the Belgian Beer theme for the night) and we'll more or less have the place to ourselves for the event provided there are enough of us to fill it.

Not only do they sell Belgian Beer, but also spirits, wine and cocktails and some tasty snacks too if you're feeling peckish, it has wi-fi and Michel, who runs the place, has promised to look after us. We'll be there from 6.30pm onwards.

The bar is really centrally located and very near to Congress on Villarroel 60 with the entrance on Gran Via Y Diputacion. The nearest metro station is Urgell on L1.

Not sure yet whether or not we have a sponsor for the evening... watch this space as they say.

So please put the date in the diary and we look forward to seeing you in sunny Spain :)
