Barcelona Mobile World Congress 2013

MWC2013

Barcelona recently hosted, for the 11th time already, the Mobile World Congress 2013, this year’s industry-defining event, and the biggest mobile communication congress. More than 72.000 participants from more than 1.300 companies and 200 countries presented their latest products and technologies, the ones that will be defining our technological future. The Mobile World Capital, Barcelona, hosted various professionals, producers and developers form the mobile telecommunication industry and industries similar to that one, such as Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO, and Stephen Elop, Nokia CEO, which was of great interest of the publicity because of their recently announced partnership. Nokia, which seems to have over slept the Smartphone epoch, is now back in the ring and ready to conquer the market, assured us Elop.

The congress itself had different parts, such as the conference, with inspiring speakers from mobile operators, consumer brands and industries touched by the mobile market; the GSMA seminar program, with an intention to educate the attendees on industry initiatives such as Mobile Spam, Mobile Privacy, Spectrum and Disaster Response; the World’s Largest Mobile Industry Exhibition, where more than 1.700 companies showcased their organizations across eight halls and outdoor places at Fira Gran Via.

One of the most interesting subjects of the congress was LTE – Long Team Evolution, as well as the 4G technology.

Barcelona Gourmet Tour

This is a spicy itinerary to get into the amazing world of Spanish gastronomy, shapes and flavors.

The visit begins at the market of la Boqueria.  The Boqueria Market was considered the best market in the world  at the World Market Conference that took place in Washington DC. Is a perfect  place to enjoy an incredible contrast between colors and activity, ideal to discover why Mediterranean  cuisine is internationally known due to its ingredients.

From the market we will wander around the gothic quarter admiring the most reputable gourmet shops.  A sweet and salty itinerary that ends in the Ribera quarter  next to Santa Maria del Mar Church with a wine tasting session and “pintxos” appetizer.
