The theme of the 2019 event was ‘Intelligent Connectivity’ – a term that is used to describe the powerful combination of flexible, high-speed 5G networks, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and big data. Intelligent connectivity marks the beginning of a new era defined by highly contextualised and personalised experiences, delivered when and where you want them. This is the future of our industry and our world.
More than 109,000 visitors from over 198 countries and territories attended MWC19 Barcelona, the mobile industry’s premier event. Over 55 percent of last year’s MWC attendees held senior-level positions, including more than 7,900 CEOs.
More than 2,400 companies showcased the latest technology, products and services across 120,000 net square metres of exhibition and hospitality space at Fira Gran Via.
Over four days, the conference programme at MWC19 highlighted the intersection of ‘hyper-connectivity’, enabled by 5G and IoT, and ‘intelligence’, delivered by AI and big data. In addition to the core elements of Intelligent Connectivity, MWC19 explored eight key topics addressing the greatest industry impact and influence.

Simon Segards, CEO of Arm
