Mobile World Congress is back for its 12th year running here in the Mobile World Capital of Barcelona. It is the largest gathering in the world for the mobile industry and each year welcomes the biggest mobile and tech companies to speak, presents new products and create a conversation about the newest technologies and ideas in the industry. It is one of the biggest events that takes place in Barcelona annually and each year sees over 100,000 attendees and over 2,200 organisations exhibiting.

The 4 day event will take place in the Mobile World´s capital, Barcelona, at two venues: Fira Gran Via and Fira Montjuïc.




One of the most exciting and newer events of Mobile World Congress is 4YFN (Four Years From Now).

Home of the growing global tech startup community, this event provides an intriguing and stimulating look into the future of technology. It is the absolute centre point of the congress for innovation, with over 600 new start-ups exhibiting this year and pitching their ideas.

The event will feature three stages, with inspiring speakers such as Jimmy Wales, Founder of Wikipedia, who spoke at last year’s MWC. Don’t miss out on an exclusive look into how some of today’s leading figures took their start-ups from their small beginnings to now billion dollar organisations.

Whether you have a start-up, are interested in developing one or just want to learn more about this side of innovation, this event will be a hub for invaluable advice and information from expert mentors within interactive workshops and presentations.

With over 700 investors in search of the next big idea and over 12,500 attendees to network with, it’s an unmissable opportunity for start-ups and for some could even lead to their big break.
