The first sponsor is confirmed - that's our friends at Open Mobile Summit. You may have met them at the Barcelona party in February as they had a lot of beer tokens! They enjoyed meeting you so much that they're sponsoring the party again and that means we have a new, bigger location. We're going to be at the Victoria Park Plaza Hotel and the delegates at the Open Mobile Summit will be joining us too so there'll be a good mix of familiar faces and new friends. Don't worry, the party is still free to attend, it just means we have more room, and with a bit of luck, more beer too.
You can sponsor too!
I'm looking for more sponsors so talk to your FD, your CEO or whoever holds the budget and see if you can't join in the fun too on 19th May. Just like Barcelona, I'm offering some Start-Up specials as well and if you really fancy splashing the cash, there are combined Open Mobile Summit & Swedish Beers sponsorship packages. Get in touch with me to find out more.
Like our previous events, this is a relaxed evening, no formalities, no presentations, no business cards thrust in your face as soon as you arrive. Just come with an open mind, be prepared to see friends old and new, talk nonsense, enjoy a drink or five and have yourself a good time. Oh, and leave the ties, the corporate personas and the sales spiel at the door please. The Swedish Beers crew will be on hand to welcome you and the lovely people at Open Mobile Summit and the Victoria Park Plaza have promised to look after us well.
No need to RSVP unless you want to. There's no guest list, no tickets and there's no guaranteed entry. Just come and go as you please.
I've checked the Wi-Fi and it works and even though we're one floor down, the mobile signal seems to be good too so you'll be able to demo your latest mobile thing whilst enjoying your beer and a chat. We'll have the usual beer tokens and if they run out, we'll revert to a pay bar. There is a smoking area to the left of the main entrance of the hotel and is well signposted.
So let me introduce our first sponsors....
Open Mobile Media
I’m delighted to welcome Open Mobile Media again to sponsor the London edition of Swedish Beers. As part of their sponsorship, they're giving away 10 Gold Passes to their upcoming Open Mobile Summit. It's free to enter the competition and the closing date is 23:59 on Thursday 1 May 2014. More information over on the Swedish Beers blog and click here to fill in the entry form.
You don’t have to register, but if you do, you’ll get a handy email reminder of the time, date and location. And it will also give me an idea of how many are coming and keep our sponsors happy.
Looking forward to catching up with you all
Please note, your registration details will be shared with all sponsors.
