Why the Mobile World Congress?
Barcelona used to be famous for its architecture, sports teams and opera but now, as the newly-crowned Mobile capital of the world, there’s no better place to get connected than at the Mobile World Congress.
Organised by the GSMA, this four-day event is the world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry, and it’s going to be packed with seminars, 2,300 exhibitors, 300 speakers, the Global Mobile Awards ceremony and the leading mobile companies showing off their latest innovations. With 5G coming to a phone near you soon, MWC offers a profound glimpse into the future, so make sure you don't get left behind in another century!
Barcelona… it was the first time that we met!
Last year, over 108,000 people attended Mobile World Congress. The organisers estimate each attendee made contact with ten new business contacts. That means over one million people connected - many of those at C-Suite level, proving MWC is the place to network.
Keynote Speakers include Börje Ekholm, CEO of Ericsson, Cher Wang, Chairwoman of HTC and Kathy Calvin, CEO of United Nations Foundation who’ll be talking about the UN Sustainable Development Goals - a plan to end poverty, halt climate change and fight injustice and inequality by 2030. That’s the year 2030, not half-past eight - they're good but not that good!
Silver and Gold Passes are available if your boss/accounts department will sign off, while, if you are the CEO or CTO you may way to think about the Platinum Experience. It comes with unlimited access to the VIP Networking Lounge, complimentary food and drinks, concierge service and a tour of the Palau de la Música Catalana, where you can do your best Freddie Mercury impression.
So if you want to make sure you’re connected - get networking in beautiful Barcelona.
