Mobile World Congress 2012 is fast approaching. Running from the 27th of February to the 1st of March, the venue as ever is the Fira Montjuïc in Barcelona.

The leading global mobile telecomms conference, its mission statement is ‘redefining the mobile’.

The visitor statistics from 2011 make a compelling case for MWC as a must attend event. Attendance was at an all time high of over 60,000, with the largest ever senior-level audience at more than 58%. Over 1400 exhibitors were in attendance s were over 2,900 press members representing 1,500 media outlets. Also in attendance were over 12,000 Mobile App Developers.

Accommodation is highly in demand during Mobile World Congress. Hotel rooms can be hard to find, and their prices are raised for the duration of the event. This makes a rental apartment an attractive option. We offer apartments very close to the Fira site, see ent-barcelona.html”>Gran Via A and Gran Via B apartments are no more than 5 minutes walk away, as is the Joanot apartment. See our Fira apartments section for a full list of apartments in the vicinity of the Fira.
