The kick-off of the AWE congress in Barcelona was on the 7th July 2019. EVENTÔIR organized this event for an affiliate marketing company. We had already organized a rebranding event for the same company last year. Hence, this was a great opportunity for us, as we like to establish long-term relationships with our clients. This enables us to better understand their wishes and requirements and helps us ensure that each event will be even better and more successful than the last one.
What is AWE?

It is the place where top digital marketer and ecommerce entrepreneurs come together to share their knowledge and secrets. You can learn all about new technologies and tactics.

AWE CONGRESS 2019
This year’s congress was held on the 8th and 9th of July. Optionally, there were additional training days on the 10th and 11th of July. The congress itself was held in Fira de Barcelona Montjuic. This is the main trade fair institution in Barcelona and well-known in the whole of Europe. The congress attracted more than 3,000 attendees, more than 110 advertisers and there were more than 30 speakers, such as Jason Akatiff, Founder & CEO, A4D Performance Network, Ezra Firestone, Co-founder & CEO, Smart Marketer Inc. and Gabriella Rapone, CEO, Ace Maverick Media. Special networking events were organised in the evening to give people the opportunity to look for new opportunities and to get acquainted with other brainboxes in the industry.
THE KICK-OFF NETWORKING EVENT
To kick off this AWE congress in Barcelona we organized a networking event on the 7th of July 2019. This annual networking event was held on the rooftop of Catalonia Plaza Barcelona, at the Clock terrace. This brand new terrace owes its name to the iconic clock at the main entrance of the hotel. This two-floor space of more than 700 m2 is the perfect location to organize events and business meetings.
This was a private and exclusive event. People had to sign up in advance to take part. We organized a special evening program with a DJ, food and drinks, which started at 20:00. People enjoyed their cocktails made in the colors, called Cyan and Magenta, of the company’s brand. Furthermore, a sharing box was set up to take memorable pictures, there were balloons in the water and the staff was wearing shirts with the logo of the company to create more awareness around their brand.
The evening of the AWE congress in Barcelona started with a welcome speech, which was followed by a walking dinner. This event was a great way to start networking with people before the congress itself had even started. The night was a huge success on the rooftop of Catalonia Plaza Barcelona, with views over Montjuic in Barcelona and we received a lot of positive feedback.
