Industry Relevance

Mobile World Congress has been in operation for over 30 years (the first edition was held in 1987), but until the annual exhibition acquired its current branding and location in Barcelona, it took decades. Initially, the exhibition went under the name of 3GSM World and was held in Cannes until it grew in size and rebranded in the 2000s. Now, Mobile World Congress continues to grow not just in size and internationality, but also in scope as well. The product portfolio now goes beyond mobile technology, even though it still remains in the title, and includes immersive content, AI and automation alongside connectivity, digital wellness, trust, and security. Other than to position your products, the exhibition also provides an excellent support program in keynote speeches and panel discussions.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

Google, Huawei, KT, Sierra Wireless, Turkcell/Lifecell, and T-Mobile attend the fair. So do Ericsson, Samsung, Nokia, and Telefonica. Because of the presence of such major corporations, exhibiting at the Mobile World Congress is quite worthwhile. Also, attendees can receive high recognition during the high-profile Global Mobile Awards ceremony. The conference program guarantees that the exhibition will be populated by top-notch influencers and experts in the industry. You are certainly interested in your potential to conduct business, and we are happy to say that you’re in a great position to win big. Roughly 60% of all trade visitors are senior-level executives with purchasing power.
