#1BEGG Treasure Hunt – prizes & goodie bag

Wednesday, May 21, 2014 0 , , Permalink 0

Though we can’t reveal too much or we would influence the Treasure Hunt, we can already tell you about one of the main prizes for the Treasure Hunt, and about two goodie bag items…
Let’s start with a main prize: Crowne Plaza Antwerpen is offering one of the Treasure Hunt winners a one night stay for 2 persons in a Superior Room, breakfast & access to Octopus – their Pool & Wellness Centre – included, free parking, oh and the WiFi is of course also free  ;-)

I hope we will find a ‘strong’ goodie bag, cause Duvel Moortgat is offering us a package of 4 tasty mini-Duvels!

And last but definitely not least, another item in our goodie bag is a 3D scan of your body offered by our venue host Hello bank! How cool is that?! Hope to see you there!

PS: if you don’t have a smartphone that meets the requirements, but you know a ‘sjakos’ who has a compatible smartphone, don’t hesitate to bring him along, and drag him with you through the streets of Antwerp. Drastic times, require drastic measures ;-)

Announcing Belgian Girl Geeks Event #1: Treasure Hunt Contest in Antwerp

Monday, May 19, 2014 4 Permalink 3

Hello ladies,

Initially I wanted to wait with posting the announcement until our website is ready, but I’m too impatient so here we go :-)

For our 1st edition we’re going outside! Our start & end location will be the Hello bank! pop-up store in Antwerp, but in between you’ll be on the hunt for prizes on the Meir using beacon-technology offered by Nexen. This technology is rather new so to be able to participate in the Treasure Hunt Contest you need an BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) support. Meaning an Apple smartphone as from iPhone 4s or an Android device as from 4.3. Let’s say a smartphone of maximum 2 years old. For Android you can test if it will work on your smartphone by already downloading the BeaconApp: if you get to see the app in the app list, it should work! If not you might have to update your software.

Belgian Girl Geeks: Under Construction

Thursday, May 8, 2014 1 Permalink 1

In April Clo Willaerts decided to stop with Brussels Girl Geek Dinner after 7 years of really great and fun events during which I personally had the opportunity to meet amazing girls, with the same interests as me, who I can now call friends. Therefor I didn’t want it to end here…

Soooooo… it’s with great pleasure that I can announce that “Belgian Girl Geeks” is under construction: Petra Sell will design a logo for us, An Vanderlinden  is working on this website (depending on the logo, the look & feel will still change),  and together with Nexen I’m preparing a 1st event that will probably take place on Saturday the 31st of May (AM) in Antwerp, so mark your calendars and subscribe to this blog so you automatically receive new Belgian Girl Geek posts ;-)

Looking forward to seeing you all during one of the upcoming events!

Warm Regards,

Kel Wouters
