More than 1,700 companies showcased their organisations through exhibition stands and hospitality space across eight halls and outdoor spaces at Fira Gran Via.

GSMA Connected City
Hall 3 Exhibition
Hall 4 Conference Village
The Networking Gardens
The GSMA Connected City (Hall 3) was a fully connected city street, right in the middle of Mobile World Congress. Attendees could stop into a cafe, browse among a selection of vehicles, then visit their favorite shops. It was a great glimpse into the (very near) future!
Attendees also enjoyed an evening networking event in our eight Networking Gardens. The eight Networking Gardens provided attendees with a great place to meet up with fellow attendees and potential partners.
The event also hosted the 18th annual Global Mobile Awards, which recognized 37 outstanding offerings in a number of categories, covering topics from apps and entertainment to devices and innovation
