techUK is attending Mobile World Congress in Barcelona

techUK is pleased to confirm that Sophie Greaves, techUK's Head of Telecoms and Spectrum Policy, will be attending MWC Barcelona later this month. MWC - or Mobile World Congress - is an annual trade show and exhibition organised by GSMA for the mobile and telecoms sector. It's held in Barcelona, Spain at the Fira de Barcelona and - typically - around 100,000 people attend. Luckily for techUK, this includes many of our members!

Below we are sharing details of how to meet up with techUK, what the Department for Business and Trade Programme and UK Pavilion has in store, and opportunities to meet with other trade partners. 

Department for Business and Trade at MWC 2024

Even before MWC gets underway, DBT is offering members an opportunity to sign up to a series of free webinars entitled "Runway to Mobile World Congress". Each bitesize session is hosted by a different organisation:
