Calling all Startups!

Following its resounding success at Mobile World Congress 2017, we are bringing the Showcase Stage back to Hall 4 for 2018. This stage is designed to showcase the brightest new companies, people and ideas that our audience otherwise wouldn’t typically encounter, it is set up to facilitate short, impactful demonstrations. The stage will be based outside the main auditorium in the Conference Village, Hall 4 and demonstrations will take place during allocated networking breaks and lunches throughout the week.

As well as the Showcase Stage we are also running an innovation focused session where startups are invited on stage to pitch in front of a panel of well-established industry experts, including founders and investors. These startups will showcase their product or service live on stage and each company will then be judged by our panel and the audience will get to decide and vote on the best pitch. The winner will receive 2 complimentary Platinum passes for MWC19!

Interested in taking part in the Showcase Stage and/or take part in the pitch presentations? The online submission form is now closed, if you would like to make an enquiry please contact the speaker team at speakers@mobileworldcongress.com including the following information: brief summary of your company and what you plan on showcasing.
