The best Swedish Beers event yet

Yes, thats right folks. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, we had our best event in Barcelona during Mobile World Congress.

We had 100s of mobile executives through our doors throughout the evening right through until closing time in the wee hours of the morning. There were free beers galore (we drank the bar dry of draught Stella!) and definitely lots of chatting and mingling going on.

There were too many people there to mention but one of the things I really enjoy about the event in Barcelona is that we attract visitors from all over the world and it really adds to the atmosphere on the evening. I know we had folks there from Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Finland, Sweden, Israel and dear old Blighty of course.

Some of the folks we met there included IPC, Manchester United FC, Yahoo, Google, Peperoni, Mobvision, Perform Group, Fred's, ARN Consulting, Respond Mobile, Acxiom, Medio Systems, Airwide Solutions, Flixwagon, Spinvox, Mobile Monday, Vodafone, Reactor, Aditon, MX Telecom, Ribot, Future Platforms, Mippin, Vertu, Jajah, Betavine, Ionsquare, We Love Mobile, MSN, Sponge, Rok, Truphone, Reuters, m-spatial, Device Management Forum, Moblica, Radius-Ed, Wizzfone, Greenwich Consulting, CScout,, Sofia Digital, Carmunity, Leiki, M:Metrics and a load more besides. If you were there, then add a comment below and tell me!

And if you think it's just me who thought it was a good night, then some folks have said lovely things about us too...

"Cheers for a superb Swedish Beers night in Barcelona! Really good
turnout and good fun of course!"

"Swedish Beers has been the best networking event I’ve been to, and I
don’t just mean Barcelona."

"It was a great event, lots of interesting people having a great time. I even met someone from Sweden - how cool is that!"

"Thanks for a great do in Barcelona, I know everyone said it but it was
the best one! Here’s to the next!!"

And we couldn't have done it without our very generous sponsors - PINoptic, Trutap, MyMart and Admob so a special thank you to them for their generosity with beer tokens. And a huge thank you as well to Belchica and the bar staff there who made it such a fun evening for us.
