From 27th of February until 2nd of March 2017 the extraordinary Mobile World Congress 2017 took place in Barcelona, Spain. Magnetar Ltd was present both in the massive Exhibition organised by GSMA and the Brokerage Event organised by the Enterprise Europe Network.
More than 2,300 companies participated in the MWC17 exhibition, which spanned nine halls and eleven outdoor spaces at Fira Gran Via and Fira Montjuïc. Everything from connected cars, virtual reality, new handsets and ingenious app ideas, to 3D printing, privacy protection and backend solutions were on display.
With over 108,000 attendees, the MWC17 was a combination of the world’s largest exhibition for the mobile industry and a conference featuring prominent executives representing mobile operators, device manufacturers, technology providers, vendors and content owners from across the world.
Magnetar explored and proposed collaboration initiatives, with a great number of this year’s exhibitors and also participants of the brokerage event where meetings took place in order to discuss ideas for future projects in the sectors of:
- Smart Cities
- Emergent Technologies and Solutions for Projects, Industries, Businesses, Tourism, Smart and Sustainable Development
- Energy (Harvesting, Efficiency, Monitoring)
- Green and Sustainable Development
- Smart-Green Transport, Mobility and Logistics

Results of Magnetar’s participation at this year’s Mobile World Congress can already be considered as very fruitful and new projects and initiatives with our new collaborators are starting to blossom.
