Once again, Barcelona has become a global reference point in technology and mobile business.

Both highly anticipated events took place from the 27th February till 2nd March 2017 in Barcelona at the Fira Gran Via (MWC) and Fira Montjuic (4YFN).

Las year almost 101,000 attendees from 204 countries and territories met at the Mobile World Congress 2016. The event was covered by more than 3,600 members of the international press and media. More than 2,200 companies had an exhibition space in the 2016 edition.

For more than 10 years the MWC Brokerage Event brings together SMEs, multinationals, technology centers and universities around the world through 20 minutes of meetings where participants can present their projects. Right now there are already arranged 632 meetings between 302 companies participating from 33 different countries.

Three years ago, Mobile World Capital Barcelona decided to organize a start-up meeting in parallel with the Mobile World Congress (MWC): the MWC was attended by the big companies in the sector, but it was impossible for new entrepreneurs to attend it due to the high costs. The event was called 4YFN, and focused as a place to help entrepreneurs to make contacts, meet partners and investors and make their products well known. The experiment was so successful, that in its third edition the 4YFN occupied more than 18,000 square meters in the fairgrounds of Montjuïc, forming part of the official MWC program.

4YFN has grown exponentially due to the booming sector of technological start-ups, companies that can scale rapidly and internationally in a few years. With few resources, people with technological talent can turn your company into world leaders, and your project reaches millions of people. But the road is not easy, and 4YFN seeks to help them.

The congress of young entrepreneurs occupied this year 18,000 square meters, for 8,000 that filled in the last edition. If the MWC is to be visited by Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) or Lewis Hamilton (F-1 pilot), then 4YFN will be visited by the Wikipedia confounder, Jimmy Wales; Rich Miner, or Android co-founder and partner investor in Google Ventures. More than 12,000 people attended a trade show held by more than 500 investors from around the world. Various competitions rewarded the most innovative projects, and there also was an exhibiting area.
