- Con más de 72.000 visitantes y una asistencia un 8% superior respecto a la edición de 2012

BARCELONA, España, 28 de febrero de 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- La GSMA ha anunciado hoy la cifra de 72.000* asistentes de cerca de 200 países al Mobile World Congress 2013, estableciendo un nuevo récord para el principal evento de la industria móvil. La conferencia y exposición de cuatro días atrajo a ejecutivos de las más grandes y mundialmente influyentes operadoras de móviles, compañías de software, proveedores de equipamiento, empresas de Internet y empresas de sectores de la industria tales como la automoción, finanzas y salud, así como delegaciones de gobiernos de todo el mundo. Alrededor del 50 por ciento de los asistentes al Mobile World Congress de este año mantienen posiciones de nivel C, incluyendo a más de 4.300 CEO's.

"Estamos muy contentos con los resultados récord para este Mobile World Congress 2013 en nuestro primer año aquí en Fira Gran Via", dijo John Hoffman, CEO de GSMA Ltd. "El sector del móvil es uno de los más vibrantes y dinámicos del mundo, y la innovación que está impulsando al sector ha sido claramente evidente durante el Mobile World Congress, desde la exposición hasta los programas de conferencias como el App Planet o las mPowered Brands, y las nuevas iniciativas del evento como la NFC Experience. "Agradecemos a todos los asistentes, expositores y patrocinadores por hacer que nuestro evento de este 2013 sea un éxito".

El Mobile World Congress estableció records adicionales con más de 1.700 empresas exponiendo productos y servicios innovadores a través de 94.000 metros cuadrados de exposición y espacios hospitalarios. Más de 3.400 medios de comunicación internacionales y consultores asistieron al evento para informar sobre las muchas novedades significativas anunciadas en el Congreso.  

De acuerdo con un análisis económico preliminar independiente, el Mobile World Congress 2013 habrá aportado más de 320 millones de euros a la economía local. Esto representa un aumento de aproximadamente 19 millones de euros respecto al impacto económico del evento de 2012, impulsado por el crecimiento de la asistencia y el número de empresas expositoras, así como el incremento del espacio dedicado a exposición y hospitalidad. 

Los CEO's líderes ocupan el escenario del Mobile World Congress

Más allá de los discursos, la conferencia de 2013 también incluyó sesiones enfocadas en explorar tópicos como los big data, la nube móvil, mWallets, NFC, small cells y ciudades inteligentes, así como el papel de los móviles en industrias adyacentes como la publicidad, la automoción, las finanzas y el retail.

Asistencia record al GSMA Ministerial Programme

El Programa Ministerial de la GSMA mostró de nuevo un record de asistencia, con delegaciones del gobierno de 143 países y organizaciones intergubernamentales reunidas en Barcelona.

Enfoque en la Vida Conectada

Un punto culminante del Mobile World Congress fue la Connected City, compuesta por un completo entorno urbano que incluye un ayuntamiento, grandes almacenes, un apartamento, una tienda de electrodomésticos,  un hotel, cafetería y sala de estar, una oficina, una sala de exposición de coches y una calle. Desarrollada en colaboración con AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, KT, Telenor y Vodafone, la ciudad conectada mostró nuevos productos y experiencias que ilustran cómo un futuro más conectado -impulsado por el móvil- mejorará la vida cotidiana de las personas a través de la automoción, educación, salud, viviendas, comercios y más.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era.

Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
