Mobile World Congress 2019 (also referred to as MWC 2019) is the single most important mobile technologies trade fair in the world. The congress represents the entire sector in four action-packed days. The upcoming edition of MWC will take place at Fira Gran Via from the 25th to the 28th of February. The organisers expect more than 107,000 trade visitors and 2400 exhibitors to attend.
Several key industry forums will be held during Mobile World Congress 2019. Some of the highlights:
- 4 Years from Now (4YFN) – the global business platform for tech start-ups, featuring workshops, discussions, conference sessions, competitions and pre-arranged one-on-one meetings
- GSMA Seminars, delivered by renowned experts, and covering essential industry developments and themes
- Mobile World Summit – a closed-door meeting between top executives and public policy makers, with speeches, panel discussions and networking opportunities
Professionals, industry speakers and companies from around the globe – including the biggest consumer brands and organisations – attend Mobile World Congress each year. The impact on the hotel industry is considerable and even though Barcelona is a tourist destination with excellent accommodation options, finding a suitable hotel for the event dates can be difficult. It is recommended to secure your stay for Mobile World Congress 2019 early on, as hotels near the venue are the first to claim full occupancy for the duration of the event.
