Mx3 Barcelona

Off-the-record Conversations with Leaders, Innovators and Mavericks in Media

RBA, Roc Boronat Building, Av. Diagonal, 189, 08018 Barcelona, Spain

12-13 March 2024

To all media and media-tech mavericks and trailblazers shaping the future of specialist media: Mx3 Barcelona is a gathering dedicated to business leaders just like you!

Mx3 Barcelona is an in-person, non-traditional summit with a high premium on off-the-record, interactive thought-leader conversations, deep learning, connection, and relationship-building. It exists for the creators, publishers, and technologists at the forefront of empowering media for defined communities.

There will be no slide presentations. Just A-list speakers and global attendees participating freely through highly interactive off-the-record stage conversations and leadership round tables, discussing content, communities, monetisation, AI and more. There will be a limit on attendee numbers, creating an intimate environment with many informal opportunities to connect and build strong industry relationships.

Speakers so far confirmed are from companies such as Morning Brew, Industry Dive, Vox Media and Her Campus Media (all USA), RBA and Spainmedia (both Spain), Financial Times & FT Strategies, Future, B2B Marketing/Propolis (UK), Boom Saloon (UK and Malaysia), Berlin Consulting and Deutsche Welle (Germany), Ringier (Switzerland), Agri Media (The Netherlands) and Splice Media (Singapore).

Brought to you by Media Makers Meet (Mx3), the team behind the FIPP World Media Congress and Mx3 Berlin, Mx3 Barcelona will take place on 12 and 13 March 2024 at RBA Revistas in the city.

Video testimonials from 2022


From the dawn of mankind, humans have been naturally drawn to like-minded souls, with the Internet cranking that up to eleven!  We all crave connection and a sense of belonging and gravitate towards communities catering to our special interests and needs.

Fast forward to now, and audiences are splintering at scale into numerous interest-based communities - from super-specific niches to large fan-based verticals. It is a vibrant ecosystem set to be further enhanced through AI in another technological sea change.

It is an environment made for specialist media – that is, media targeting well-defined enthusiast and professional communities of interest – creating diverse opportunities like never before. From indie creators running their newsletters, podcasts and video channels to multinational, multiplatform giants, they all have one goal: serving and monetising communities.

It’s no surprise that walls are coming down::

  • Look at The New York Times investing in media verticals, for example, snagging The Athletic to woo sports fans for $550M.
  • Consumer media are dabbling in B2B, for example, Vogue, with its launch of Vogue Business. 
  • The lines between B2B and consumer marketing are blurring, providing services previously thought to be the domain of either one or the other.

In short, it is a mashup of opportunities - one of the most exciting sectors in media overall - with Mx3 Barcelona bringing it all together in one vibrant place!

"Thanks again for the event - we loved it. We want to partake in panels in the future and host them as well. Please keep us in mind!"

Welcome to Mx3 Barcelona!


Mx3 Barcelona emphasises open conversations, special opportunities to connect, and an all-around experience that enhances learning, networking and, just as importantly, enjoyment.


The event schedule includes:

A premium on “connectedness”

We limit the audience of our Mx3 events to a maximum of 200 people to ensure an intimate environment with easy conversation and an informal atmosphere. It’s:
