BARCELONA — Vendo has announced that on Friday, May 27, it will be hosting a beach volleyball tournament in Barcelona.
The event will be held at la Playa Nueva Icaria from 4-9 p.m. and there will be a dozen teams from the industry participating. These teams will represent various companies in the Barcelona area.
The goal of the tournament is to unite companies from the industry for some fun and networking, Vendo Managing Director Thierry Arondo said
“Over the past 10 years Barcelona has really come to the forefront," Arondo said. "Today it’s the leading city in Europe for our industry. Those of us based in Barcelona are proud to take our place alongside the industry’s other power centers such as Southern California, Montreal, San Francisco and Miami. This tournament is a great way for all of us to come together, network and have some fun on the beach.”
The participating teams include Vendo, ExoClick, Badoink, WellHello, Manica Media, WebClicks, TrafficStars, Billy, DreamstarCash, PlayaMedia and others.
The competition looks like it’s going to be tough if ExoClick’s COO Adrien Fonzé has anything to say about it,
“ExoClick’s offices oversee the beach where the tournament will take place. Our team has clear instructions to win the tournament due home field advantage,” Fonzé said. “In all seriousness, it’s a great initiative from Vendo to get the local companies of our industry to meet in such a fun way."
Erwin De Boer, captain of team Manica Media, said: “I think it's a nice effort to have some fun with industry colleagues. Besides that, getting some outdoor activity would be nice a change for some people.”
ExoClick will give tournament gear to all participants and the winning team will take home a trophy provided by Badoink.
