Emotions after the Mobile World Congress Barcelona 2023 event are still running high. This is a great opportunity to reminisce about the most important information related to this event. What conclusions have we been able to draw after exchanging experiences with various industry experts? What did we do during these few inspiring days? We invite you to join us on a journey to the recent past.
The most important facts about MWC Barcelona 2023
The theme of this year's event was "Velocity", and it was on this topic that the talks and discussions were mainly focused. Therefore, there was no shortage of fruitful debates on the future of the telecommunications industry using services and products based on:
- 5G networks
- Artificial intelligence
- Machine learning in 5G-based predictive maintenance
- Public policies
- Cross-sector collaborations
- Digital transformation
- Improving customer experience
What is the most popular way to summarize an event? Usually it is best to show the activities through the eyes of the participants so that you can remember the course of the congress. In accordance with the standards of the IT market, we would like to share with you numbers that perfectly describe the huge scale in which the MWC took place.
During the event held in Barcelona in February/March, there was a chance to network with over 88,500 specialists from 202 countries and territories. You could also hear speeches by more than 1,000 people who shared their knowledge and experience in an inspiring way. What else is worth noting is that there were around a million unique viewers of the keynote sessions on MWC Barcelona, Mobile World Live and partner platforms.
Main conclusions after MWC 2023
The main thought that will stay with us after the event is primarily the growing importance of digitization of companies from the telecommunications industry. The trends that were talked about during the MWC coincide with the predictions of Comarch’s experts, which we collected in the form of an eBook at the beginning of the year.
Both during speeches and behind-the-scenes conversations, voices about the even greater importance of artificial intelligence (AI) were heard. Providing robust systems offering services based on the 5G network will not be possible without the use of modern technologies. An important issue was also sustainability and how to use energy-efficient solutions, such as 5G cloud services. Open API standards were also raised, as they enable the cooperation of many products that are easy to integrate and use.
MWC Barcelona 2023 through the eyes of Comarch
During this year's edition, we had the opportunity to welcome you at our stand. Thank you so much for coming to see us. One of the most important values in business are relationships. MWC was a great opportunity to make new friends, and to develop the ones we have had for years. We are glad that an in-person meeting was possible. Even though hybrid events are still very popular, the possibility to talk live has a completely different power.
“After a long period of virtual meetings and remote communication it was so great to be a part of MWC at full speed once again. We were able to showcase our latest developments, receive feedback, and have meaningful conversations about the future of our industry. We discussed so many things on topics around 5G, automation, AI/ML, sustainability, healthcare and many others. We were impressed by the level of engagement from attendees, which reinforced our belief that the telecommunications industry is dynamic, innovative, and constantly evolving. Overall, the MWC event was a great opportunity to re-engage with our clients and partners, and we look forward to continuing to push the boundaries of what's possible in our industry” – says Bartłomiej Kordas, BSS Product Manager at Comarch.
