Our next Swedish Beers event in London is NOT on Thursday 5th April

It's on Wednesday 11th April instead and is proudly sponsored by Tanla Mobile.

Yes, it's that time of year again when we feel the need to drink beer and talk about mobile. And after the success of our last Swedish Beers event in Barcelona, we thought it was about time we had another one in London at our usual haunt of the Nordic Bar in W1.

So if you have a passing interest in things mobile and like to chat to other people from media, mobile, creative, tv, and marketing about where mobile fits into the bigger scheme of things, then Swedish Beers is for you. It's a friendly and informal event, no powerpoint, no speeches, just networking with interesting people and chatting about mobile things (or not!).

The Swedish Beers Mobile Networking proceedings kick off at 6pm on Thursday 5th April Wednesday 11th April (that's the day most of us break up for Easter) (that's just after the Easter break) a sponsor will be announced shortly so with a bit of luck the first few beers will be on them (we hope - if you're interested in sponsoring, then please let me know... it's a fab way to raise your profile within the industry). And our proud sponsor is Tanla Mobile.

See you there!

Barcelona was a blast

So much so, that it's taken me all this time to recover! No but seriously, we all had a thoroughly good time at Swedish Beers courtesy of our friends Gabi at MyStrands and Alex at Colibria. We had a fabulous turnout - definitely our best yet - with Belchica rammed full of mobilists from all over the world (UK, USA, Spain, Germany, France, Sweden and even Australia) and it was a pleasure to welcome them all. Companies who joined the fun included Sponge, Mixipix, flytxt, Admob, Leiki, TekoLondon, FT, The Times, ZoneMedia, MoMedia, Intelli-call, WeLoveMobile, ARN Consulting, Mobiq, RespondMobile, Tanla Mobile, BeepMarketing, M-Trends, Mobhappy, Techdirt, Midnight Communications, QArea, Vodafone, Future Platforms, Briing, Rok, 5th Finger, m:metrics, zingmedia, w2forum, hotxt, and loads more besides. There is photographic evidence up on flickr and we were even filmed for German TV by 3Sat - how cool is that!
