What is Mobile World Congress? And Why Is MWC Special Among Other Events?

MWC stands for Mobile World Congress, which is a very big event that will take place in Barcelona between February 27 and March 2, 2017. Mobile World Congress is the world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry, organised by the GSMA. GSMA is a worldwide organization that works on projects and initiatives that address the collective interests of the mobile industry, and of mobile operators in particular.

MWC is one of the best mobile technology events tech-savvies may ever experience throughout their lives. Here’s why.

There are many tech meetings all over the world. But, MCW is the biggest event specifically about mobile technology. Every year MWC gathers the whole mobile world in one place; from mobile phones to drones. This is one of the reasons that MWC is a world-famous event.

Secondly, you have a chance to be the first to try all the newest mobile technology. All big-name brands will be at MWC to present and show off their brand new gadgets. Participants of MWC will be able to see and try all those new products before anyone else. Also, you will be able to observe the latest trends in mobile technology world. Everything you see at MWC will be the hot topic next year.

You might not know but GSMA announced that they started to make their events environment-friendly in 2014. They calculate each event’s carbon footprint and they invest the same amount of money in renewable energy sources. This eco- investment makes them carbon neutral. Now, they even have a PAS 2006 certificate to verify their environmental efforts.

If you want to experience the best and the newest mobile products, MWC is the place to be. We have to say, you must attend MWC 2017.
