Tickets are now available (here) to our 6th pan-regional event taking place in Stockholm, in the Obaren (map) on the 2nd April from 6pm to 9pm. The evening’s theme will be startups and the future of mobile. Come and hear what's hot in mobile, where we are going, what's in store for the future and where does the biggest opportunities for mobile startups lie.

Make sure you'll show up if you get a ticket (they are free!), or you'll end up on our black list which means there's no coming to our events in the future.

Just as before, the structure of the evening will take into account the wishes of participants from earlier events. We have been asked to leave more time for networking, but have a solid panel in middle. Thus, we will have one panel with industry heavy weights and the rest of the evening will be left for networking and discussions between participants. Each panel participant will have a chance to introduce themselves before the panel.

They say best things in life are free and so is ArcticEvening (watch a short video on the event here), but we will still have a sign-up system to the event which you cand find here. Without exceptions, the tickets have sold out extremely fast, so make sure you are here to get your ticket. But, like said above, make sure you'll show up if you get a ticket, or you'll end up on our black list which means there's no coming to our events in the future. We are able to host the event free of charge for participants due to our wonderful sponsors. Our sponsors are presented below.
