Barcelona, the Mobile World Congress Capital

January 22, 2014

Mobile World Congress 2014


Mobile World Congress, the congress par excelence for the mobile phone industry

The MWC (Mobile World Congress), the largest mobile phone exhibition in the world, has been held in Barcelona for the past nine years. Organised by the GSMA, a worldwide association of mobile operators and associated companies, it was begun with the objective of promoting international cooperation in the GSM mobile telephone system. Manufacturers and operators use the congress to present cutting edge global mobile communications technology – in other words, the latest innovations that will mark the future of the mobile phone industry. The slogan of the Mobile World Congress 2014 to be held between 24 and 27 February is “Creating What’s Next”. Particular attention will be paid to the so-called “wearables” and the generalisation of 4G services which, according to forecasts, will reach one million subscribers in 2017. Keynote speakers at the congress will include the top executives from IBM, Facebook and WhatsApp. Facebook president Mark Zuckerberg will give the inaugural address.

 Fira de Barcelona


The new Fira de Barcelona on the Gran Vía, inaugurated in 2013, is the venue for this ninth edition. It will have an exhibition space of more than 98,000 square metres with 1,800 exhibitors, 240 speakers and 48 topic-focused conference sessions. More than 75,000 attendees are expected at the congress, mainly from the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, China, South Korea and Spain, with official delegations from 145 countries. 4 years from now New for the MWC 2014 is the international 4 Years from Now meeting to be held at the traditional Fira de Barcelona venue at Montjuic. This event will be devoted to mobile communications entrepreneurs. The format will be more modest than the MWC, with four conference days to which all those entrepreneurs with ambitious projects will be invited.  


The GSMA has chosen Barcelona to organise the World Mobile Capital until 2018. The event generates a financial impact of some 3.5 billion euros for the area during this period.

Novedades en el Rally RACC de Cataluña

Las novedades en esta edición del Rally Costa Dorada consisten básicamente en cambios de recorrido y trazado. En esta 49 edición los aficionados podrán disfrutar el viernes 25 de octubre, primer día de competición, de tres espectaculares tramos urbanos en horario nocturno. El sábado 26 de octubre, segundo día de la prueba, podremos ver los tramos más decisivos del Rally en un recorrido de Riudecanyes a Colldejou y vuelta hacia Salou. Un recorrido de pistas de asfalto y tierra que finalizará en el centro urbano de Salou, un final espectacular para el que se espera una gran afluencia de aficionados.
