#getthemsg - Barcelona messaging event
Update: the event is cancelled
Bad news, at the last minute Betahaus cancelled on us, so rather than the speaking event we’ll be having a dinner. Please get in touch if you’d like to attend. I nevertheless hope to go forward with Get the Msg events in the near future. Please follow the @getthemsgevent twitter account to stay informed. Thanks.
I’m organizing Get the Msg, a new regular event for anyone in Barcelona working on digital messaging.
Get the Msg
- 7:15pm, Tuesday 13th September
- Where: Betahaus Barcelona - Carrer de Vilafranca, 7, 08024 Barcelona
- Event language is English
- Please signup. Stay informed: @getthemsgevent
Our lineup for the evening
Our speakers on the 13th of September will be
Kim-Fredrik Schneider - Founder of Abi, a medical messaging service
Mark Boyd - Research Analyst / Industry commentator at Platformable
Eric Marcos - Co-founder of Hubtype - a tool to unify messaging services for customer care
Johan Ahlund - Founder of jabberBrain, makers of intelligent virtual assistants
Each speaker will present for 10-15 minutes. Afterwards there will be drinks generously provided by our hosts Betahaus Barcelona and sponsors Estrella Damm. Many thanks to them!
Messaging is rapidly becoming the dominant form of digital communication, and many people in Barcelona are doing interesting work in the space.
Our goal is to provide a regular forum for those working in digital messaging to meet and share their experiences. The value of the event is as much for attendees to meet each other and build relationships as it is to hear from the speakers.
The format of Get the Msg will be the same as the #geomob events I run in London: we will have brief (10-15 minutes) talk from four or five speakers doing something interesting in the field of messaging. Afterwards we’ll continue the discussion over drinks.
Who should attend?
Anyone working on (or interested in working on) messaging in any form. By “working on” I mean founders, engineers, designers, product managers, etc. Not marketing and PR people.
Whether you work for a global player, a start-up, in academia, or are just a hobbyists building cool things, whether you are a digital veteran wth many years of experience or someone new to the industry, if you are interested in digital messaging you should attend.
Please sign up on the event page on Lanyrd so we can have an estimate of numbers.
I can’t make it on September 13th, when is the next one?
We’re not sure yet, let’s see how the first one goes. Ideally I’d like to do one event per quarter. So probably our next one will be January 2017. If you’re interested please follow @getthemsgevent on twitter. If you’d like to volunteer to speak at a future event please get in touch.
