We’re gearing up for one of the biggest events of the year – Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
So many conferences, so little time. But even as our diaries become hopelessly booked up, one makes room for the major events, and MWC Barcelona is certainly one of those.
2,400 companies are due to converge in Barcelona this year for the flagship conference of the Mobile industry, bringing over 107,000 attendees to the Catalan capital.#MWCB19 will host an impressive array of keynote speakers including Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella Click To Tweet
