The future of the Mobile World Congress

With each passing year, the MWC adjusts and evolves to keep up with emerging technological innovations, ensuring it remains at the forefront of the latest trends and developments.

At MWC 2024, attendees can look forward to exciting additions, including the Talent Arena, a dedicated networking event for industry professionals. This platform offers opportunities for professionals to showcase their skills, expand their networks, and engage in workshops, conferences, and competitions.

A key focus of this year’s event is the regulation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) usage. Measures will be discussed to swiftly address any potential infractions or issues, ensuring responsible and secure technological progress.
