SMX Stockholm and OMclub-Party
At my last trip I went to SMX in Stockholm, then to Berlin and – in 3 days at all – at last to OMclub at Cologne.
It was my first visit in Sweden, so I’ll tell something about Sweden and the people there too.
Leaving Germany is not as easy from Bavaria as it should be: I had to go from Nuremberg airport to Berlin airport to get to Stockholm :/ One more reason to leave Bavaria.
I love to fly – especially starting at night and flying into the sunset 🙂
If your only used to the airports in Nuremberg and Berlin – Arlanda is very big!
Landing at Stockholm airport (Arlanda) on Sunday night 11 pm isn’t convenient, but a bad surprise was waiting for me: I thought I would sleep by a friend in Stockholm, but I didn’t checked out where Ekerö is before I started my trip. A bad mistake! My most expensive Taxi-Trip ever.
The SMX took place in „Munich Brewery“ building. Thx to my private hotel (Thank you so much, Mezza) I learned a lot about public transportation system of Sweden and I could save a lot of money next morning by travelling not by Taxi to the city of Stockholm.
SMX Stockholm 2011
The biggest surprise at SMX Stockholm where the lots of female speakers there. Much more than I’d expected and so I had very interesting conversations with:
- SEOmom (Gillian Muessig, Mom of SEOmoz-Whiteboard-Friday Rand Fishkin)
- Motoko Hunt
- Carolyn Shelby
- Ann & Ingela (I missed a link for here)
My sesion was in cooperation with Mikkel deMib Svendsen to War on Spam, just after lunch break:
SMX Panel: War on Spam
It was my first time as an speaker in english and I talked with Mikkel ( www . demib . dk) and Bill (back-azimuth . com) about Black-Hat and Sex. My part was cloaking – and a few Tweets occured:
Stockholm bei Nacht
Never before being at Stockholm, I joined the speakers-group at night and we went into the beautiful city.
I tried so much different sorts of beer, but the only one I remember was the honey-beer (never again).
The swedish people don’t smoke that much like Bavarians do, but they have a special art to „take“ tabac: it looks like tea bags, but they suck it – never seen that before.
Special thanks for a special night in Stockholm city to:
- Mikkel (www . demib . dk)
- Magnus Bråth (brath . se)
- Michal Zawiasa (maxroy . com)
- Simon Sundén (sökoptimering . se) – thx for the cigarettes
Leaving Stockholm, heading to Berlin, to Cologne – in 1 day!
I hate getting up early, but the airplane wouldn’t wait – so, after 3 days at Stockholm I went back to Germany – to BERLIN (I love this city!) at 4 o’clock I got to get up…
Arriving at Berlin Airport, my bag got missed. But I had a few meetings in the morning, so I couldn’t take the long run through the whole airport. Normally I’m lucky, so I thought it will appear anywhere in short time (and it did at Nuremberg).
What a Wednesday: arriving at Berlin at morning, travelling to Cologne at 2 p.m. per train, arriving at 8. p.m. and went direct to OMclub-Party:
Der OMclub Cologne
At first I have to thank my sponsor: Mr. Sudoku aka Martin Schlüter ( www . martins-meinung . de) and also thanks for the great VIP-Service.
Als Erstes muss ich meinem Sponsor danken: und auch für den VIP-Service!
All girls were dressed up – except of me, because of my lost luggage 🙂
But I met the Panda and everything was all right:
Ever want to know what’s behind panda? Then look here for the sexy Panda:
I’m so happy that I trained for OMclub at Stockholm with lot’s of beer – the party was awesome!

Martin, Malte, Brense, Mario, Yannik, Simon, Gretus, Consti, Gerald, I can’t list and link you all but I love you!
There are so much impressions about OMclub, I think it’s not necessary to say anymore than:
Thx Randolf (randolf . jorberg . de) – – more than 3.000 people – you did it – it rocked AGAIN!
