The world's largest conference, the GSMA Mobile World Congress is an event featuring prominent leaders representing mobile operators, device manufacturers, technology providers, vendors and content owners from across the world. The event also has a huge part of exhibition for the mobile industry where few companies book a spot to put up a booth and attendees can visit them personally.
The GSMA Mobile World Congress first occurred in 2009 February. In 2011, Barcelona, Spain was chosen as the "GSMA Mobile World Capital” and continue to be the venue of Mobile World Congress through 2023.

The Women4Tech event focussed on inclusion of women in the mobile industry heading towards female leadership. 40 game-changing products, services, devices, apps and technologies were awarded Glomos at the Global Mobile Awards. Every summer there is an industry event in Asia Mobile World Congress Shanghai which just took place on 28th June - 1st July 2017.
