In case you’ve missed it: is a proud co-organiser of the next edition of Mobile Sunday, the annual premier networking event on the night before 4YFN and Mobile World Congress begin over in (hopefully) sunny Barcelona.

The 21st of February is approaching fast, so if you want to join us for the evening, buy your tickets now (one more week until the price increases from €50 to €70, or when we run out).

You’ll be in good company – hundreds of mobile innovators, investors and journalists from around the world have already registered for what will be a night to remember!

Today, we’re proud to present the final list of confirmed speakers and the program for Mobile Sunday. Both are still subject to minor changes, but here’s what to expect between 6PM and 10PM on Sunday the 21st of February at the beautiful Antiga Fabrica Estrella Damm:

Renowned mobile industry analyst and Andreessen Horowitz partner Ben Evans will be kicking off Mobile Sunday, followed by a fireside chat between myself (Robin Wauters) and Brenda O’Connell, Twitter EMEA’s tireless director of business development.

Next up, Zack Weisfeld, the General Manager of Microsoft Ventures Global Accelerators, is stopping by to share his thoughts on the world of corporate accelerators in a fireside chat with The New York Times’ Mark Scott, while Jaunt (and former Flipboard) CTO Arthur van Hoff will share a glimpse of the future of virtual reality in a conversation with TechCrunch’s Mike Butcher.

The inimitable Werner Vogels, CTO of, will be closing the event in an interview with Ben Rooney (Informilo, ex-Wall Street Journal) before we retire for beers and bites at the venue (a brewery) and food trucks that will be lined up outside the conference space.

But before that, we also have exciting panels offering deep dives on global entrepreneurship, developers and investors.

Check the program below to see who will be joining us on those panels; they include the likes of Diane Chang (Facebook), Romain Huet (Stripe), Alice Zagury (The Family), Renaud Visage (Eventbrite), Maoiliosa O’Culachain (NASDAQ), Maria Alegre (Chartboost) Siraj Khaliq (The Climate Corp / Atomico), Andreas Bovens (Opera Software), Rodrigo Martinez (Point Nine Capital) and many more!

Last but not least, we’re featuring a number of exciting startups on stage, including Photomath (Damir Sabol), Trip4real (Gloria Molins), Mapillary (Jan Erik Solem), StoreDot (Doron Myersdorf) and Preadly (Inma Martinez). We can’t wait for you to meet all of them!
