GSMA has focused the event around eight themes including Industry 4.0, AI, mobile networks and innovation, implying, as expected, that there will be a particular focus on new technologies.

Key speakers at the event will include the CEO’s of leading telecommunications firms Ericsson, Deutsche Telekom, BT as 5G and IoT networks set to be key topics of discussion throughout the week.

“The overriding mission is to mobilise the Internet of Things and we think that mobile is the most powerful, scaled platform to do that,” said Andrew Parker, GSMA’s Programme Marketing Director for IoT, speaking to Business Chief. “The mobile industry can add serious value here.”

Further, leading mobile developers including Samsung, LG, Huawei, Nokia and others will all be present at the conference, with the expectation that a number of next generation flagship handsets will be unveiled.

Welcoming over 100,000 visitors, MWC poses as the ideal platform for key industry players to showcase their latest products, technology and research, from mobile handsets to leading IoT applications.
