2017-02-23T20:36:58.061+00:00I have some sponsors to announce! Hurrah! There will be beer tokens for everyone! So without further ado, let me introduce you...Our lead sponsor is DigitasLBi: DigitasLBi is a modern, data-inspired agency - the only agency designed to offer clients a complete stack of services, from integrated communications, to commerce to CRM and innovation services across the world, all driven by our data about what really counts for your business.The mobile team is headed for Barcelona once again and this time they're sposoring Swedish Beers! Some of you will have already met Ilicco, Rafe and Sergio at previous Swedish Beers events or have tuned into our Choons 'n Chat podcasts with Tech Talks Central. We'll be doing some more podcasts this year, so watch this space as they say. This year, DigitasLBi is bringing more of the team along to MWC and they will be on hand to chew the fat on all things mobile - be that mobile marketing, advertising and media or innovations in hardware and software that can make a difference to their clients' businesses. So if you want to find out what can be achieved when hard data meets imagination, then search out Ilicco, Sergio, Rafe, Lorenzo and the rest of the crew when you come to Swedish Beers! Oh, and being lead sponsor, they'll also have the largest batch of beer tokens.++++++++++++++++++++++++We also have a range of lovely supporting sponsors. Please join me in welcoming them to the party. Meet Headforwards who are based in Cornwall, UK and specialise in software development outsourcing. Our primary aim is to work with our clients to create and deliver custom software that brings them business value. We believe in working in an Agile way and have adopted both the agile philosophy and agile methodologies into our business strategy and day to day life.Our business model is different to most other outsource software companies. We create dedicated teams for specific projects and never switch members to other projects, nor do we have team members ‘waiting on the bench’ which ultimately drives costs up.Meet Toby and his team and they can explain more about what they do, what agile means all whilst extolling the virtues of living and working on the stunning Cornish coastline and generally have a good time.+++++++++++++++++++++++Many of you will already know Ben Rosen and his team from Inspiring Interns and Inspiring Search. They've been regulars at Swedish Beers since the very first parties in London in 2001 and have supported us ever since then. You may remember their polaroids from last year's bash. And I wonder if you still have their sunglasses?! Or perhaps you've joined in one of their Ping Pong competitions at our London parties? I digress. The team is brilliant at graduate recruitment (they've placed over 5000 young people since 2009) and also do senior level recruitment in the mobile and digital sectors. Ben and his team are not like other recruiters (they're much less pushy and much more human) and I can guarantee you'll have great fun with them. I'm sure they'll also have a few surprises up their sleeves to help us all have a good time on the night.++++++++++++++++++++++Next up is 51 Degrees. James Rosewell and his team will be in Barcelona and joining us as a sponsor for the first time. So let's make sure we give them a very warm welcome. 51 Degrees helps designers, creators and business leaders make amazing website experiences based on responsive design principles.

We are THE fastest and the most accurate device detection service there is. Our accuracy comes from our device combinations databas[...]

To that end, I'm putting on a Swedish Beers party on Monday 2 May in San Francisco and would love to see you there.If you have a passing interest in mobile technology, like to chew the mobile fat without any frills, formalities, sales pitches or death by PowerPoint, then Swedish Beers is for you!

With Truphone, you'll be roaming free. James is also the co-inventor of the LCD touchscreen (amongst other things) and is a published author and authority on Artificial Intelligence.I'm on the lookout for additional sponsors to join Truphone to help the party go with a swing and a venue (I have a couple in mind, but welcome suggestions too) but I wanted to put the word out on the date so you can get it in your diaries and spread the word.I look forward to seeing you on Monday 2nd May!Skål HelenYou may also be interested in the other events I'm organising in the US in Mountain View, New York City and Los Angeles.

2016-04-11T15:00:23.172+01:00A big thank you to everyone who came and chewed the mobile fat with us in February. Thank you to our sponsors, Gavin and his team at Voluum, Nextbit, aql, Vyke, Veoo, Inspiring Interns, Inspiring Search and Joshua PR. We couldn't have done it without their financial and moral support.
2015-02-20T13:59:08.081+00:00From humble beginnings where about 25 of the London Swedish Beers crowd and their friends got together in a bar in Barcelona to chew the mobile fat during Mobile World Congress to a big annual event celebrating all things mobile. It’s been quite a ride to get here and we’ve not done too shabbily at all to be on the 10th one in Barcelona! I say ‘we’ because the party would be nothing without the sponsors, helpers, staff and attendees. It’s a collective effort! So let’s make that effort again in March to celebrate our 10th anniversary.This year’s party will be on Wednesday 4 March at Dostrece. And sponsorship funds permitting, we will also operate a nearby chill-out lounge as well. Want to talk sponsorship? Then please get in touch with Helen to discuss. Packages available for all budgets. If you’re a start-up, I have a special deal for you to buy a batch of beer tokens without having to shell out for a full sponsorship package. You can buy those online or get in touch for more info.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 as well as the friendliest bar staff in town. No need to RSVP unless you want to and want a reminder of when and where the party is and to get any updates by email. There’s no official guest list, no tickets and there’s no guaranteed entry. Just come and go as you please. Of course, none of this could happen without our sponsors.Introducing our lead sponsor, KochavaThey're the bees knees when it comes to analytics and mobile attribution. They have some very nifty ways of getting the data you need whilst adhering to all data protection and privacy rules and best practice. They are unbiased and independent and empower advertisers to achieve their mobile media goals. Through mobile device recognition and tracking, the Kochava platform provides precise, real-time analytics that span from initial launch through conversion, optimization and lifetime value (LTV) reporting. They're using a really interesting scientific approach to do all this, so feel free to chat to them about game theory, big data and probability as well as chewing the mobile fat. Oh, and they'll have a big bunch of beer tokens so you know where to go to get your drinks! Find out more on their website http://www.kochava.com/SponsorsWelcome back AQL! If you've been to Swedish Beers in Barcelona before, you may well remember Adam and his crew as they've supported us for several years now. They really know their onions when it comes to voice, SMS and hosting. They've been in the mobile business for a very long time, have the most amazing data centre in a converted church in the North of England and are great fun to boot. Meet the gang to chew the mobile fat, enjoy a few beers and have a good time.You may have met Futurice before at Swedish Beers in Berlin or London. They're a fab creative technology company, with offices in the UK, Germany, Switzerland and Finland, have innovation and digital creativity in its DNA. Renowned for building digital services for people to love, they’re equally at home with enterprise software as they are with consumer products. And they’re not just working on websites and online projects; they’re also experienced in electronics and internet of things. Not only that, but they pride themselves on creating a great place for people to work (they were the No 1 company to work for in Europe in 2012 and 2013) which makes for great client services too. These guys are on a mission to work with people who want to build the world’s most awesome[...]
I know it’s been a month since we all put the mobile world to rights at the Swedish Beers party in London, but I’ve only just had time to upload the photos for you.
A few thank yous are in order – Firstly to the fabulous sponsors – Open Mobile Media, Inspiring Interns (thank you for bringing the ping pong table and organising Beer Pong. What a hoot!), Futurice and US Tax & Financial Services. Thank you to the venue – The Victoria Park Plaza Hotel – you did a great job for us. And to the volunteers who helped me run the event, especially Shafiq for the photos. Speaking of which…height="500" src="http://www.flickr.com/slideShow/index.gne?group_id=&user_id=47155863@N00&set_id=72157645187224486&text=" frameborder="0" width="500" scrolling="no" align="center">
They’re also up on Facebook too if that’s your thing.
I don’t yet have a date for the next Swedish Beers. Get in touch if you’d like to sponsor one.
Meanwhile, you might be interested in one of Cooladata’s upcoming events in London, Amsterdam and New York talking about behavioural analytics. There’s a webinar too for those of you who can’t meet in person. OK, so it’s not a beer and chat type event, but for those of you interested in monetising mobile (that’s most of you, isn’t it?), it may well be of interest. More info here.

I’m pleased to announce our sponsor line-up. They are ready and waiting for you to join the merry throng, have a chat about all things mobile, or the weather, whatever suits and to enjoy a beverage or two. We’ll have wine, beer and soft drinks available. Our lead sponsor, once again, is Open Mobile Media. They’re hosting us at this year’s Open Mobile Summit London. You’ll meet Precksha, Manni, Ruthana, Ina and the team. They’re all lovely and they’ve all been working incredibly hard to put the conference together. I’m pleased to be chairing one of the sessions too. They’ll have the biggest batch of beer tokens and I know they’ll want to meet as many of you as possible to find out your thoughts on all things mobile and where it’s heading. If you haven’t got your ticket already, I have an *exclusive* discount code for Swedish Beers and Heroes of Mobile readers and attendees. You’ll get £500 discount on a gold or silver pass. Use code 2515Swedish on the registration form. Next up, we have Futurice. They kindly supported Swedish Beers in Berlin this time last year. Futurice is a software design and development consultancy based in Finland, Germany and the UK. They believe in an open culture that fosters happy, motivated people. And they’re a very friendly bunch. They even have their own Futurice beer! Sampo and his team will be on hand to talk mobile with you. They have tons of experience and some very cool projects they’ve worked on so I know you’ll enjoy chatting to them. Joining the sponsorship roster are newcomers to Swedish Beers, US Tax & Financial Services. Join Nora, Sitara, and Fran from US Tax & Financial Services. They provide advice, guidance, planning and compliance services for individuals, partnerships, corporations, trusts and estates for anyone subjected to the US tax system, wherever they may be in the world. If you're already doing business in the US or are planning to set up an office there, these guys can help you navigate the complexities of the tax system there and also the complexities of additional compliance and regulations. Avoid those penalties and talk to these guys. You'll also find they have more than a passing interest in mobile and technology and are very pleased to be supporting this edition of Swedish Beers. And last but by no means least, we have inspiringinterns (internships and graduate recruitment) and inspiringsearch (digital recruitment and headhunting). If you’re a regular at Swedish Beers, you’re bound to have met one or more of the team already. Charlie and Benedict were on the door for our Barcelona party, CEO, Ben, has been attending Swedish Beers since they started back in 2001 and they’ve sponsored many times over the years. The team have been recruiting for the mobile industry for many years and are very knowledgeable and approachable. If you haven’t signed up already, you can still do that over on Eventbrite or add yourself on Facebook. Doors will open at 6.30pm and we’ll be there for as long as people want to hang out.

They have a rather fabulous data centre too in Leeds in a converted Methodist Church. That means you can also colocate securely in their datacentre (it is like Fort Knox in there!). They serve over a quarter of the FTSE100 and are as happy to work with SMEs as they are large corporates and public sector. They really are one of the friendliest bunch of people you could hope to meet and they really do know their mobile stuff – and not just the stuff they do. They really understand your business too. You may remember Adeven from last year’s Swedish Beers party and the one we held in Berlin last summer (the beer garden was lovely!). Well, they’ve rebranded as Adjust. They’ll tell you much more about it at Swedish Beers. Wanna talk analytics? Adjust.io is the way to go.

As an official Facebook mobile measurement partner that is also integrated with over 120 other networks worldwide adjust ensures that marketers and publishers know exactly how their app is performing, absolutely anywhere that they choose to market it.

Just a quick note to let you all know that I haven’t forgotten you. There were a bunch of lovely Swedish Beers parties earlier in the year and now it’s time to plan the next lot for the next few months. If you’re up for sponsoring and getting involved, then please get in touch. The cities I’d like to cover in the next few months are:
London (October or November ideally)
Barcelona (February 2014)
Stockholm (yes, I think it’s time we actually had a Swedish Beers in, you know, Sweden!)
But there may be other cities that are ripe for a Swedish Beers party, so do let me know.
You can get in touch with me (Helen) by email
(image) Yes, Swedish Beers is happening tonight in London Town and it looks like it will be a good one. The theme of the night is BYOD. It's an acronym that has been running through the mobile industry recently, especially amongst enterprises. What's that you say? BYOD - Buy your own drinks. Not to be confused with Bring your own device... Yes, it's a buy your own drinks night tonight, but don't let that put you off. The Nordic Bar are looking forward to welcoming you and there'll be a good crowd there with friendly faces and mobile banter. I hear tell that it's also 2 for 1 on cocktails. I know what I'll be having later :)
(image) Never fear though. There will be a few beer tokens lurking on the night. If you speak nicely to the Mobile Marketing Magazine guys, they will have a few tokens for the early birds. And they'll also have the latest issue of the magazine to give away which includes columns by Mobile Hero, Russell Buckley and our very own Helen Keegan.
(image) You may also find that there are a few beer tokens courtesy of our friends at the Payforit Summit. It's a new Heroes of Mobile partner event (you can find out about it here) and they've given Helen a bit of cash to buy a few rounds. So you may be able to blag a free drink yet... Looking forward to seeing you tonight.
