Pepcom’s MobileFocus Global event kicked off the Mobile World Congress expo in Barcelona last week, with record numbers for both exhibitors and attendees. Amidst the sounds of live Spanish guitars, over 570 journalists and analysts from 40 countries poured into the Palau de Congressos to watch demos and from 62 of the world’s leading innovators in wireless technology.
PowerbyProxi was represented by the two person team of VP Business Development for Consumer Technologies Tony Francesca, and our media aide for the week Bridget Fishleigh. From all reports the event was a great success with Tony fielding over 30 interviews during the night and talking to journalists well past the 10pm finish and even as Bridget was leaving at 11.30. Some of these have been written up and published – check out our news page.
Comparatively we attracted a lot more interest than the two wireless consortiums who were also exhibiting at the show which is always a nice little victory to have.
A small collection of photos from the night is included below.
