Many thanks to everyone who came out and helped make our first #geomobBCN a success. Steven Feldman wrote a great summary of the evening.

Based on the enthusiastic response to our first event, I am pleased to say we will work on making it a regular thing, aiming for 3-4 #geomobBCNs per year. Of course that would not be possible without the generousity of our venue partner CoWorkIdea and we will be back at their excellent co-working space on the evening of Wednesday, the 24th of April, at Carrer de Torres i Amat, 21, First Floor,

Just like our first event, and like #geomob in London (BTW, our next event there is on 19th of March) the goal of this #geomobBCN will be to provide a forum to learn and exchange ideas about any interesting services and projects that deal with location. Everyone working in or curious about the location space or with location services is welcome. You absolutely do not need to be some sort of GIS expert (though GIS experts are of course welcome as well).

Our second event would not be possible without speakers, and I was delighted to have so many people volunteer. Please get in touch if you would like to speak at a future #geomobBCN.

The talks are a chance to learn, but equally important is the dialogue between the attendees, which is why I hope everyone can also stay for #geobeers - generously paid for by our sponsors: AVUXI, Localistico, Mappery, and OpenCage Data.

  • at a nearby bar after the talks.

We will follow the time-tested #geomob format:

  • doors open at 18:00

  • at 18:30 we begin with a very brief introduction

  • a few speakers presenting their projects. Each speaker will have slides and speak for 10-15 minutes. After each talk there will be time for 2-3 questions. The talks will be in English.

  • after the talks we will head to a nearby bar for #geobeers paid for by the sponsors.

Our speakers on the 24th of April will be

And hopefully one of two more.

All of that, and geobeers and good discussion - a good time is guaranteed.

Please get in touch if you would also like to speak, either on the 30th or at a future event.

Many thanks to our speakers, Coworkidea for hosting us, and of course to our sponsors for making #geomobBCN possible. Please share the event details with everyone you know who may find the evening interesting.

I look forward to seeing you all at 6:00 on the 24th of April
