    The Next Web and Barcelona.IO are gearing up for the little get-together we’re hosting in Barcelona next week at the awesome Antiga Fàbrica Estrella Damm venue near the Sagrada Família.

    There are still seats available for the event: tickets are only 20€ and can be purchased right here.

    We’re hosting the event on Thursday 11 July, from 7PM to 9:30PM – followed by a meetup with free beer for everyone – at the old Estrella Damm factory (C/ Rosselló 515 in the Eixample district).

    It’s possible that there will be some last-minute changes to the program and speaker line-up, but it will likely go something like this:
