Mobile phones have ceased to be a simple communication tool and have become an extension of ourselves. Searching for information, paying, booking holidays, playing online games, and checking our bank accounts are just some of the many functions we carry out daily with our handheld devices.
Mobile technology is fully integrated into our daily lives and has led us to live in a hyper-connected environment. This fact makes it necessary to create a collaborative space where professionals from different industries are now able to come together to improve mobile communication and present the latest technological advances that will transform the future.
All this excitement comes to life in an international event where Mobbeel will be present, MWC 2023. We will tell you everything you need to know about this event.
What is the Mobile World Congress?
Mobile World Congress is one of the world’s leading technology events organised by the GSM Association. This dynamic networking event will uncover emerging trends and technologies showcased through the industry’s most advanced technology launches while bringing together the most influential personalities in the global tech ecosystem.
It stands out as a high-impact conference programme where visionaries and top-talent people such as Pekka Lundmark, President & CEO of Nokia, José María Álvarez-Pallete, CEO of Telefónica and Tim Hoettges, CEO of Deutsche Telekom, will talk about the industry’s hottest topics.
