Useful information for the MWC 2019

Mobile World Congress 2019 will take place between February 25 and February 28. It is the world's largest congress for the mobile industry and it is held in Barcelona. There are more than 107,000 attendees, around 2,400 exhibitors and more 200 countries are represented. And these are just some of the numbers that help understand the size and importance of this event. 

Companies as big as Alibaba, Cloud, Cisco Systems, Huawei or Lenovo, Google, Intel or HTC, along with many others, will take part in the MWC 2019 as exhibitors to announce its most strong and innovative projects. In addition, the Mobile World Congress 2019 edition includes a multitude of conferences with speakers such as Guo Ping, CEO of the Chinese giant Huawei or the president and also CEO of the Orange Group, Stéphane Richard. They will be joined by Anjali Sud, founder and CEO of HTC and Anastasia Leng and Viviana Chan, as founders of Picasso Labs and Sparrho respectively. 

This year the MWC will revolve around intelligent connectivity, addressing hot topics such as hyperconnectivity, 5G, the Internet of Things or artificial intelligence.

4 Years From Now (4YFN) is an event linked to the MWC and a programme of MWC19 that also takes place between February 25 and February 27. It enables startups, investors and corporations to connect. There also is the the Youth Mobile Festival (Yomo), an event for young entrepreneurs, that plans to attract around 25,000 attendees between February 26 and March 1.

Where does the MWC take place?

The MWC takes place in Fira Gran Via, in Hospitalet de Llobregat, really close to Barcelona. However, the magnitude of the event makes it necessary to use two different locations. On the one hand, Fira Gran Via for the MWC as we said, and on the other hand, Fira Montjuïc, next to Plaza España for the 4YFN. 

How do I get to the venue?

Sitges is around 30 minutes away from the main venue by car, so you will still be close enough to it. If you don't drive or you don't want to hire a car, you can get to the MWC with public transport from Sitges.

Besides its proximity with Barcelona, one of the best advantages of the location of Sitges is that Fira Gran Via is located in the south of Barcelona, the main gateway for all those who want to trave from Sitges by car or by taxi. 

Booking an apartment in Sitges is a great option if you are looking for a peaceful environment after a long day at the Congress. You will be able to enjoy views to the sea, take a walk on the beach and relax away from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona (while still being close to it).

Let yourself be seduced by Sitges: a little jewel wedged between the Garraf massif and beautiful crystaline beaches.
