The 2017 Mobile World Congress will turn Barcelona into the Mobile World Capital once again

 World Mobile Congress 2017 (WMC 17)

The Mobile World Congress 2017 is nearly here again. Barcelona will welcome the world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry at the Fira de Barcelona from 27 February to 3 March 2017. Last year it was attended by over 100,000 participants and this year the figure is expected to grow.

The Mobile World Congress will welcome mobile manufacturers, service providers and content distributors eager to show off their latest products. There will be over 2,000 exhibitors, bringing together professionals and specialists from all over the world. The congress programme will set out a vision for the future for the industry and analyse the latest trends.


Mobile World Congress 2017 Programme

The mobile industry continues to grow at a dizzy rate, bringing with it new opportunities and fresh challenges. The Mobile World Congress 2017 will feature a packed programme of talks given by key industry figures, including Mats Granryd (Director General of GSMA), Eugene Kaspersky (CEO of Kaspersky Lab), John Hanke (Creator of Pokémon GO), Allison Kirkby (President of Tele2) and Reed Hastings (Founder and CEO of Netflix).

There will also be plenty of other events and activities. This year GSMA has organised the first Women4Tech programme, which will analyse and aim to reduce the gender gap in the mobile industry. YoMo (Youth Mobile Festival) will bring together mobile fans aged 10–16, and 4YFN (4 Years From Now) will act as a meeting point for technology startups. There will also be seminars, networking spaces and other events, such as the Glomo Awards.
