Figures from the GSMA reveal that more than 72,000 delegates, exhibitors, contractors and media representatives attended Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year. That’s an 8% increase on last year’s total, setting a new record.
John Hoffman, CEO of GSMA Ltd, said “We are thrilled with the record results for Mobile World Congress 2013, in our first year here in Fira Gran Via. Mobile is one of the most vibrant and dynamic industries in the world, and the innovation that is powering the sector was clearly evident throughout Mobile World Congress, in the exhibition, the conference, programmes such as App Planet and mPowered Brands and new event initiatives such as the NFC Experience. We thank all attendees, exhibitors and sponsors for making our 2013 event such a success.”
More than 1,700 companies exhibited at MWC 2013.
Next year’s Mobile World Congress will be held from 24th to 27th February 2014.
