Barcelona is the new Mobile World Capital

After searching for 18 months GSMA has finalized the location for Mobile World Congress.

The location is Barcelona in Spain. Barcelona will be the Mobile World Capital from 2012 through 2018. In addition to hosting the Mobile World Congress the city will also play host to the Mobile World Festival and Mobile World Center. Barcelona had fierce competition from Paris, Munich and Milan but beat them all.

The Mobile World Festival is a consumer interface event and will have different entertainments in the form of application and technology fairs, sporting events and art and music festivals. The Mobile World Center will host temporary and permanent exhibitions with mobile as the main theme.

There will be hospitality and retail centers and also facilities for the incubation and development of various mobile solutions. Barcelona estimates that it being the Mobile World Capital will help it to earn in excess of €300 million in the first year.
