MWC Barcelona (formerly Mobile World Congress) is the largest mobile event in the world, bringing together the latest innovations and leading-edge technology, which are at the forefront of shaping the industry. This year a team of Oliver Wyman delegates will be on site to investigate the most important industry developments and innovation.
MWC Barcelona 2019's theme is ‘Intelligent Connectivity’. This term describes the powerful combination of flexible, high-speed 5G networks, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and big data. Within Intelligent Connectivity, the event will focus on eight areas:
- Industry 4.0
- Immersive content
- Disruptive innovation
- Digital wellness
- Digital trust
- The future
