Become a speaker

Interested in becoming a Speaker at Mobile World Congress 2018?

The Call for Papers is an important step in our research for our 2018 speakers, topics and agenda development. We are always keen to hear from companies and individuals who would like to speak at GSMA events.

At MWC, we strive to showcase the entire connected ecosystem, but it’s not an insignificant challenge given its pervasiveness and ever-growing complexity. So, partnerships, especially with end-users, will increase your chances of being included in the MWC 2018 agenda.

The Call for Papers will close on 27 September, 2017. We will contact successful applicants in the coming weeks and all notifications will be sent by the 30 November, 2017.

The list below gives some guidance on the topics that will be addressed at MWC18. This list is not exhaustive and we welcome submissions covering additional relevant topics. There will be an opportunity for you to add in other proposed topics during the submission process.
