- 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.

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.
