Mobile World Congress 2013
Fira BCN, Gran Via
25 to 28 Feb 2013
The Mobile World Congress 2013 is just around the corner and is almost ready to open from the 25th to the 28th of February in Barcelona.
The Mobile World Congress 2013 is expected to beat all records
This year, the MWC has moved all its activity to the Gran Via exhibition center of Fira de Barcelona. It is the first time the Mobile World Congress will be located in this area and will occupy the entire space, which is not precisely small: 94,000 square meters. The facilities in Plaça Espanya had become small for the over 1500 exhibitors from MWC, but organizers had not imagined that they would be able to fill the entire space of Gran Vía the first year of the transfer. It is also expected to increase the attendance, with more than 70,000 visitors expected to attend the MWC 2013.
As indicated by the organization of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013, the GSMA, this year there will be more speakers, about 3,000. Important and prestigious names in the world of business and technology are coming to Barcelona to share their knowledge. In this sense, and to foster networking, which is one of the most important aspects of the event, the Mobile World Congress has also increased the meeting points for professionals and improved voice and Internet connections, with also more wireless access points this year.
