March 2, 2018 At 7:00 p.m
At the beginning of this week we made a compilation with the data that the MWC of this 2018 would have to overcome. After the closing of the Barcelona event and with the counter at zero once for manufacturers and other actors of the sector until next year's edition, now it is time to take stock of what the figures that the congress of the Barcelona City has left during the days that have been celebrated.
Today we are going to show you a brief analysis with the most outstanding results and once again, we will compare them with those of 2017. Will there be significant changes for the better, for the worse, or will everything continue without significant variations? Now we will try to check and see, through them, how far the impact of one of the most important technology fairs in the world.
1,000 fewer visitors
During the fairgrounds of Barcelona, during February 26 to March 1, a total of 107,000 people. This data is slightly lower than that obtained in 2017, when it reached 108,000. Despite this decline, the organizers intended to maintain the influx of audiences from the previous edition. The most significant change seems to come from the side of the CEOs of the big technology companies, which have increased their presence compared to previous years.
The female presence in the MWC grows
As we said before, one of the highlights of this year's event has been a major step of CEOs from a multitude of signatures for the fair stands. If about 6,000 were counted last year, this year they have been 7,700 . Another fact to keep in mind is the fact that one third of the total conferences have been directed and exhibited by women.
Barcelona will continue to be the headquarters
The other MWC that is celebrated throughout the year takes place in the Chinese city of Shanghai. However, the appointment that was closed just a few hours ago is one of the most important at the beginning of the year. This means that the city in which it is celebrated receives an important economic impact. As we told you a few days ago, the 2017 edition left in Barcelona 465 million euros, this year the figure has been very similar. From the GSMA they assure that the congress will continue here until 2023.
Do you think that fairs like this should be more open to the general public or not? Have you been attentive to everything that has happened during these days? We leave available related information such as the best tablets and phablets that the MWC has left so you can learn more.
