Each year, more than 85,000 attendees walk the exhibitor halls of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona to set their sites on the “next big thing” in mobile, tablet, or wearable tech. This year will be no exception.
Starting March 1st with a soft opening, companies from all over the world will begin to showcase their latest designs, all with the hopes of garnering the attention of prospective buyers and press. Over 1,900 exhibitors are expected to take up shop for the week and represent their countries’ hottest new ideas. Bigger names at the conference include Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Tom Wheeler from the FTC. It’s expected that larger name brands will sound off in unveiling their much-anticipated models.
