About this event

MWC Barcelona (formerly known as Mobile World Congress) is the world’s biggest and most influential mobile event — it typically attracts more than 100,000 visitors from more than 200 countries and territories. In 2020 the GSMA was forced to cancel the event: "With due regard to the safe and healthy environment in Barcelona and the host country today, the GSMA has cancelled MWC Barcelona 2020 because the global concern regarding the coronavirus outbreak, travel concern and other circumstances, make it impossible for the GSMA to hold the event."

However, the GSMA is currently moving forward with MWC2021, im hybrid form: "On the 28 June - 01 July 2021, MWC Barcelona will still be the place where our industry gathers to create connected impact for a thriving society. But now, it’s also the place where you can connect with industry decision makers attending in-person and logged on online too."

For the past 10+ years,  Women in Telecoms & Technology has hosted a post-MWC event to provide news and views from the show for those of us who weren't able to make it to Barcelona. We're pleased to be able to bring you this event again this year.

WiTT founder Stephanie Liston, International Strategic Advisor, Board Director, Lawyer and Regulator, will lead our panel. We're delighted to announce that she will be joined by:

  • Stephanie Lynch-Habib, Chief Marketing Officer, GSMA;
  • Claire Enders, Founder, Enders Analysis; and
  • Dr. Mike Short, Chief Scientific Adviser at the Department for International Trade.

Other speakers will be announced closer to the date.

The evening will run as follows:

6:00pm: Zoom opens; networking

6:20-7:15pm: panel

7:15pm: wrap-up and more networking

We look forward to seeing you in July.
