Our 1st Belgian Girl Geeks event was a Treasure Hunt via Beacons arranged by Nexen, and the ladies really made it a ‘hunt’ Beacon #1 was placed in the Hello bank! pop-up store in Antwerp, our venue host & one of the sponsors. This beacon was for ‘free’, then the Belgian Girl Geeks had to go outside, and wait for tips via Twitter to locate as much beacons as possible. Some with a special assignment… And there was a bonus surprise: a ‘walking’ beacon Herman Maes aka Blogger Dailybits who agreed to be hunted by 50 geeky ladies, but brought some reinforcement in the form of his cute baby son Seppe.
We really had amazing prizes for which we really want to thank our sponsors!

Next to a mystery walking beacon, we also had a mystery sponsor who offered us a delicious lunch, and only after the lunch when everyone already said how yummy it was, the Belgian Girl Geeks discovered everything was diet-friendly, and offered by WeightWatchers. So they pulled of a 2nd ‘flavor’ test with success!
And last but not least, we also had a very nice goodie bag: the bag itself, a 3D scan & miniature puppet of every Belgian Girl Geek, lip balm & mints offered by Hello bank!, in ears by Forever 21, WeightWatchers waffles, 4 mini Duvels by Duvel Moortgat, a discount voucher from Mobistar, and an adhesive screen cleaner from COFFEELABS.
Now we can start preparing #2BEGG!
