It really warms the cockles of my heart to welcome back sponsors year after year. And that’s exactly what I’m doing here now. When you get to Swedish Beers next week, you’ll need to keep your eyes open for the sponsors as they’re the ones with the free beer tokens. Go find them, and you’ll have free drinks!
In case you haven’t met them before, may I introduce (drum roll please) aql and Adjust.
aql is sponsoring us once again. Adam and his team will be on hand to chew the fat with you and generally make sure you have a lovely time. Who is aql ? Well they’re award-winning messaging specialists: They integrate mobile messaging and voice communications into your existing business processes. It just works. 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.
Mobile app tracking and analytics company adeven is rebranding to take on the identity of its driver product, adjust which is the leading business intelligence platform for mobile apps. 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. Their BI platform displays insightful and actionable metrics on a streamlined dashboard offering key insights into in-app behaviour to reveal any campaigns most promising marketing sources.
Watch out for further sponsor and supporter announcements…
And if you haven’t registered already, or would like more information, then you can do that here.

We do have some lovely sponsors lined up for you but there's room for one or two more if you fancy getting involved. Get in touch with Helen to discuss. There are a couple of start-up special deals available.
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 three 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. There's no guest list, no tickets and there's no guaranteed entry. Just come and go as you please. If you do register, it does mean that you can add the event to your calendar and search for it in your email and easily share with friends. Fill in the form below or go direct to the eventbrite page.
It is likely to get a bit busy at times. But don't worry, people will be coming in and out all evening. That’s kind of the point as we know there’s always a lot going on and you might want to check out more than one party. If it's very busy, there's no need to queue to get in. Just check out one of the other bars nearby and come back a little later when it's a bit less frantic.
There is a small cloakroom area at the bar, but it's not secure so leave the laptops in your hotel room or apartment where they will be safe and won't get in anyone's way.
The venue is our favourite haunt with the friendliest bar staff in town, Dos Trece -http://dostrece.net/ We'll be open from 7pm through until the early hours.
So let me introduce our sponsors....
See you in Barcelona!
This is a Heroes of the Mobile Fringe Festival Event http://mobileheroes.net/

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

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 :)
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.
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.

Swedish Beers parties galore klaxon alert!
Well, they say you can have too much of a good thing, but I’m not so sure when it comes to Swedish Beers! We have Swedish Beers coming to three cities near you in the next few weeks so come on down and join the fun, hang with other people with a passing interest in mobile and enjoy a relaxing evening chewing the fat and putting the mobile world to rights.
First up, it’s a last-minute jaunt to the Big Apple. Helen will be there on Thursday 2 May with Lubna, Grace, Becky and Petra lending a hand to ensure you have a good time. Antony and Jerome from Ribot will be sponsoring the first few beers but there’s room for another sponsor if you’re up for it. It’s free to attend and we’d love to see you.
More info and RSVP here http://mobileheroes.net/events/event/swedish-beers-hits-the-big-apple/
Next we’re off to Berlin to take in the culture, enjoy a panel discussion, check out some new mobile start-ups and then finish the day with some cheer from Swedish Beers and our friends at Adeven. Again, we’d love to see another sponsor or two benefit from getting involved (get in touch here) but in the meantime, do join Helen, Russell and Kristina for some Swedish, (well probably German), Beers.
More info and RSVP here http://mobileheroes.net/events/event/swedish-beers-on-tour-in-berlin/
And it wouldn’t be the Summer if we didn’t have a Swedish Beers bash in our home city of London Town. All we’ve done is reserve the date at our favourite London watering hole, The Nordic Bar, and we’re ready and waiting to get sponsors on board. Helen’s talking to a few already but get in touch if you’d like to join the fun. We just wanted to make sure you had the date saved so we can have a blowout party….
More info and RSVP here: http://mobileheroes.net/events/event/swedish-beers-is-it-summer-yet-party/
Sponsorship and time permitting, we’ll be visiting more cities from Leeds to San Francisco. If you’d like to see Swedish Beers happening in your city and can help make that happen, then let Helen know.
If you’re coming to one of the parties, please bring a business card with you to get your first beer token. Sponsors will have the rest of the tokens so you’ll need to get chatting with them to get your hands on more. There should be enough to go around!
So spread the word, and come on down for a fun evening with friends old and new. You don’t have to be a mobile expert to join us. All welcome with a passing interest in mobile technology and a cheery disposition!

Oh, and leave the ties, the corporate personas and the sales spiel at the door please.
The Swedish Beers crew will be on hand - Helen, Jenny, Russell and the crew - as well as the friendliest bar staff in town are all waiting to welcome you.
