OpenMarket are planning a huge party at MWC this year

We’re moving inexorably towards February and MWC. If you’re heading to Barcelona, one of the important things you’ll need to give some thought to is what to do in the evenings. Although you may initially feel like going back to your hotel and collapsing, that’s not an option during MWC-week. There’s so much to do — especially and perhaps most importantly, networking!

So take note: OpenMarket, one of the planet’s leading providers of messaging and mobile transaction services, has announced it’s party. They’ve sensibly chosen the Tuesday night — that’s historically a good night for parties. Everyone’s arrived, the crazy press conferences are out of the way and folk should be reasonably relaxed and ready to network.

They’ve booked C3 Bar just nearby Placa Catalunya and Las Ramblas (to get your bearings).

They’re hosting the event with the magnificent team at Mobile Entertainment so if you’d like to RSVP, get the details here. But be very quick indeed!

Expect to be rubbing shoulders with the industry’s top folks:

The combined reach of OpenMarket and Mobile Entertainment will ensure that everyone from ­ games, music, apps, social media, advertising, m-commerce and more ­ will be there.

It will be an unmissable opportunity to catch up with partners, suppliers, clients and friends in the middle of mobile’s biggest week.
