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


Mx3 Barcelona goes beyond the ordinary – with its limit on audience numbers, it provides an intimate, immersive gathering designed around our need for connecting and building professional communities.

Here is more about the event, add-on experiences, how to get involved, and about us, Media Makers Meet – Mx3.


Peer-to-peer exchange

At Mx3 Barcelona, knowledge isn't just shared; it's exchanged in an environment made for peer-to-peer interaction and conversations. On-stage, there are no slides, interviews are off-the-record, and the audience is invited in as active participants in discussions. Our Mx3 Huddles allow you to book one-to-one meetings with various experts, to discuss pain points and solutions, challenges and opportunities.
You will be part of mold-breaking, often serendipitous conversations. Whether as part of a round table, around a coffee station, on the RBA Revistas terrace, leading off the main Mx3 Barcelona venue, at our informal social networking or walks through the city.
All are part of the Mx3 Barcelona experience, so make sure you are in the room on 12 and 13 March!

No labels, airs, and graces

Mx3 Barcelona is about inclusivity and interactivity. Titles and labels fade away, leaving room for true peer-to-peer interactions. Attendees engage with peers, thought leaders, and visionaries on equal footing, fostering connections based on authenticity and shared passions.
We encourage business and enjoyment by infusing every moment with high energy and a down-to-earth vibe. You will be part of an environment where creativity flourishes. You will be thrilled by exploring conventional and unconventional ideas, all in an atmosphere that invigorates the spirit and mind.

Bonded in success

And the best part? The potential for transformative partnerships and collaborations is limitless. Forge connections beyond the event's timeline, turning shared moments into strategic alliances, cross-industry ventures, and lasting friendships.
Mx3 Barcelona is your opportunity to create connections and bonds for ongoing business success.


Barcelona is the capital of Spain’s Catalonia region, known for its food, arts such as at The Picasso Museum, and architecture such as the La Sagrada Familia, long white stretches of beach, exploring streets like La Rambla and local produce at La Boqueria Market and treasures at the Encants markets, its global powerhouse football team FC Barcelona, and more.

Several of our attendees travel a long way to our events, and for those wishing to make more of their stay in Barcelona, there are road trips to Montserrat with its numerous mountain historical sites and up the spectacular Costa Brava coast towards France, wine tours to the Penedes wine region, get in a round of golf, go on boat trips and more.

Media Makers Meet – Mx3 brings together leaders, innovators, and mavericks in media and tech worldwide. Using our digital and in-person media platforms, we connect our community with rich industry insights and facilitate peer-to-peer interactions to help propel their businesses forward.

As an international media intelligence and business network, we exist primarily for the indie creators, consumer and B2B media and information companies, and their tech and other service providers enabling them to engage well-defined communities around enthusiast and professional topics of interest.
We serve our media, media-tech, and other service provider communities with news, features, interviews and analyses, in-depth research reports, events, and other community-related opportunities.
We launched in late 2021 as Di5rupt, with Cobus Heyl and John Schlaefli, experienced international media and tech executives, as the co-founders.
Over the years, they have managed various events around the world, including the annual Digital Innovators’ Summit in Berlin, Germany (for FIPP and VDZ) and the FIPP World Media Congress (which we continue to produce on license from FIPP).
In April 2023, we coopted the What’s New in Publishing (WNIP) website under the editorship of Jez (Jeremy Walters) to aid our vision of creating an environment where our communities can connect and engage through us online and in person throughout the year.
In September 2023, we formally rebranded to Media Makers Meet – Mx3 to better reflect how and who we serve. That is to connect international media and tech colleagues with knowledge and one another.

We hope to see you in Barcelona in March!
