We’re psyched to partner with Rudy De Waele, a veteran of the mobile industry if there ever was one, to co-organise the next edition of Mobile Sunday.

Mobile Sunday is a high-level networking event that happens annually on the evening before the Mobile World Congress and 4YFN Conference madness starts in Barcelona. Held in a fantastic location in the heart of Catalonia’s capital – the Antiga Fàbrica Estrella Damm – this year will be an extra special edition.

Mark you calendar for Sunday 21 February and get your tickets here (early-bird starts at only €30 and will be on sale until the 24th of January 2016, after which the price goes up to €50).


While the event is mostly about quality networking with C-level execs from the mobile industry and some of the world’s biggest companies in software, hardware, IoT and e-commerce, as well as startup and scale-up founders, investors, journalists and analysts, part of the evening will focus on education and inspiration on the topic of – you guessed it – trends in mobile.
