event information


Unfortunately, the GSMA has announced that the upcoming MWC Barcelona 2020 will be cancelled due to global concerns about the novel coronavirus outbreak, travel concern and other related circumstances.

MWC 2021 is scheduled on 28 June - 1 July. The 2019 edition of MWC (formerly known as Mobile World Congress) attracted approximately 2400 exhibitors and 109,000 professional visitors from 198 countries. The congress and exhibition are mainly based in Barcelona’s Fira Gran Via. However, certain events - such as the 4YFN start-up business platform - are held in the Montjuic centre.

One of the reasons behind the first-rate MWC experience is the determination of the organisers to gather the right audience. During Mobile World Congress you can meet influencers, major players and promising start-ups, ministers, policy regulators and international delegations. There is an increase in the numbers of attending CEOs. This also applies to the presence of female congress attendees and speakers.
