Show spotlights – Mobile World Congress (MWC) & 4 Years From Now (4YFN)

Shows: MWC & 4YFN

Date: 24-27 Feb 2020 (held annually)

Venues: Fira Gran Via – MWC | Fira Montjuic – 4YFN


Held alongside each other at the world famous Fira Gran Via Barcelona & Fira Montjuic, MWC and 4YFN have established themselves as 2 important trade shows on the international calendar for any exhibitors or visitors associated with the latest innovations and technology in connectivity.


The ever popular MWC is held several times a year at a number of worldwide locations, with a 2020 edition in Barcelona. The largest exhibition for the mobile industry, MWC will feature world leading technology providers, with over 2,400 companies in attendance and in excess of 109,000 industry decision makers expected to visit.


A great addition to run alongside MWC is the sister start up platform 4YFN. Designed to bring together innovative start-ups with key investors and corporations, 4YFN is a fantastic platform for anyone looking to explore new opportunities and launch exciting new ventures in a fast paced sector.



Who exhibits?


Exhibitors at MWC will be from all sectors of the Mobile Technology and Connectivity industry. Over 2,400 companies will be in attendance and notable participants include: AT&T, Vodafone, Sony, Microsoft, IBM, Huawei & Ericsson.


4YFN will feature over 800 technology start-ups who will benefit from the huge amount of attendees, organisations, investors and media visiting MWC. Events such as these would never attract such a large crowd on their own, so running alongside a world leading show gives a rare and valuable platform for smaller start-ups to connect with the people they need to take their business to the next level.



How to exhibit


Our sister company - Tradefair – is organising the UK pavilion for MWC & 4YFN on behalf of the UK Department of International Trade and TechUK.
