About the event

The UK has one of the largest country delegations at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona through exhibitors and visitors to the show. At MWC 2015, an estimated 15 per cent of delegates were from the UK. In 2015, MWC grew from 85,000 visitors in 2014 to in excess of 93,000 visitors, and is estimated to grow further in 2016.

More information on MWC 2016 taking place from 22nd -25th February 2016 can be found here:

This free workshop on 11th December has been designed to provide a free mentoring session for those exhibiting and attending MWC, along with prospects known to be interested in the UK Trade Access Programme (TAP) and/or exhibition space.
