Record visitors reported at GSMA Mobile World Congress 2012

More than 67,000 people visited Mobile World Congress this year, setting a new record for the GSMA’s event. The four-day mobile industry conference and exhibition attracted visitors from 205 countries worldwide, with visitor numbers up 11% year-on-year. Over 1,500 companies exhibited.

John Hoffman, CEO of GSMA Ltd, said “The 2012 Mobile World Congress was a phenomenal success, by any measure. The record numbers that attended this year’s event underscore how central mobile is to the lives of people around the world. This is also illustrated by the breadth of companies that participated at Mobile World Congress, with representation from not only the traditional mobile industry players, but companies from vertical sectors such as automotive, health and finance, among others. It's exciting to see the powerful role mobile has in driving innovation in new markets.”

2012 was the last year for Mobile World Congress at the Fira de Barcelona Montjuïc. Next year it’ll be held at the nearby Gran Via, which offers around 50% more space.

Mobile World Congress 2013 will be held on 25th - 28th February.
