If you crave for the most specific, relevant entrepreneurial tools and techniques to help you define your company strategy, we have great news. Barcelona will host the Strategy Day, a joint learning day for Accelerators members from all Europe, on November 28th.

This offer is valid only to EO Members attending the One Level Up event for an additional fee of 149 US$, lunch and refreshments included. Yes, we know: it is a steal!

Optional Bonus (II): Moderator Training and Summit
Attend Moderator Training (Tuesday 27) or the amazing regional Moderator Summit (Wednesday 28), both held in Barcelona and take your Forum Experience one level up too. Theme will be “Be a Better Coach”. We have organized both events to align in a way you will not miss a beat.

One-in-a-lifetime experiences
UNFORGETTABLE! Fire and fireworks are an important part of Catalan traditions and celebrations from dancing with the “devils” to the bonfires of St. John. So we will have a fire-related surprise for you. And a very transformational one, too.

Awesome Entertainment
EO events are not only profound, but also cool and fun. One Level Up Barcelona will be no exception. From the great Reception Cocktail to the Closing Fiesta, be ready to enjoy your way to the next level. And this is Barcelona… so keep an open mind.

Unforgettable Scenery
Barcelona is an open museum full of delicious architectural gems, famous modernist buildings, beautiful hills, lovely ancient streets, and friendly citizens. With a vibrant entrepreneurial community, and venue of the GSMA Mobile World Congress since 2011, you will fall in love with this beautiful city.

Unrivaled Side Attractions
If you want to enjoy your trip to the fullest extent, we have an assortment of activities that will amaze you (and your spouse).

From diving with sharks to helicopter sightseeing, from skydiving to piloting a plane, from visiting the Barcelona Football Club Stadium or the Picasso Museum to riding the tallest European rollercoaster, there are dozens of adventures waiting for you. Some MyEO activities are being prepared, too.

So plan to come a few days early or to leave a few days after (or both).

Foodies Welcome
Barcelona has over 30 Michelin-starred restaurants. It is home of several World’s Best Chefs (such as Ferran Adria). Many places in the surroundings are in the Global Top 50 Best Restaurants (such as El Celler de Can Roca or Tickets). Great food – and beverage- is found everywhere. Be ready to be delighted.

Life-lasting Networking
There’s nothing like the vibe of EO members and EO Accelerators sharing a room together! We expect people coming from +20 countries from all over the world. Among them, there are friends you have not yet met that could potentially be your buddies for life.

What are you waiting for? Come to Barcelona and meet them. They want to see you, too.

Agile Learning: Bring Your Own Session
NEW! We will start a new way to share content. Besides the speaker team we have assembled, we know that there are knowledge that you could bring to the table that can be extremely valuable to your peers. So, if you have a topic you’d love to share with others and consider that is new, relevant information or experience, we want to hear from you!

We will have one impromptu breakout sessions slot with topics that people vote for, so have your speech ready just in case you turn out to be the star of the show.

Amazing venue
EXCLUSIVE! A memorable event requires a memorable venue. We will spend November 29 inside a bulding that is pure art, the gift of a genius: La Pedrera. It is a masterpiece of Antoni Gaudí, who also created La Sagrada Familia. From its great, modern, confortable Auditorium we will enjoy an exclusive, inner view of this gem.

Spouses welcome
We have a great package for spouses. All socials, dinners, Reception Cocktail (with entertainment and Keynote Speech), and Closing Fiesta are included. And some surprises we cannot reveal at this time.

So, bring your special one and enjoy Barcelona together. You’ll thank us later.
