In the summer of 2011, GSMA selected Barcelona as the world’s first Mobile World Capital from 2012 to 2018. The aim of the Mobile World Capital is to radically accelerate the global growth of mobile. From now on, Barcelona is the world’s capital of mobile, successfully leading companies to take advantage of mobile technology´s limitless opportunity.
In addition to Mobile World Congress, the Capital comprises three other unique channels:
- Mobile World Hub, focused on the design and management of key projects that will transform the world’s mobile economy
- Mobile World Centre, an open platform and exhibition showroom where citizens are able to understand and experience how mobile is enhancing our lives
- Mobile World Capital Festival Series, inviting citizens to celebrate the mobile lifestyle through a series of creative leisure and entertainment events
Given both its dimension and the support of the public institutions, Mobile World Capital Barcelona offers optimal conditions as a global showcase for innovation.
We encourage you to take part in this new collaborative effort. To learn more about Mobile World Capital and these exciting initiatives, visit www.mobileworldcapital.com.
