GSMA Mobile World Congress, the world’s biggest and most influential mobile event was completed on Thursday, 5th of March after four consecutive days of exhibition in Barcelona. This year’s MWC had a record-breaking 93,000+ attendees from 200 countries. According to a recent research, MWC15 contributed significantly to Barcelona’s ecosystem, since profits surpassed 436 million euros and 12.675 part-time jobs were created, giving a boost to the local economy.

Let’s see some of the main key points of the event:

  • LG3 was awarded as the ‘Best Smartphone of the Year’ by GSMA (Groupe Speciale Mobile Association) in the Global Mobile Awards
  • iPhone 6 also won the ‘Best Smartphone Award’
  • Motorola Moto E was awarded as the ‘Best low cost smartphone’
  • Microsoft’s Surface PRO 3 was voted ‘Best Tablet’
  • ‘Internet of Things’ sets a new mobile identity, as is quickly becoming the largest factor in the ongoing evolution of telecom computing

In the Greek Pavilion, located in Hall 8.1 there was a lot of traffic from the 1st day of the event, a fact which can be attributed to the strong presence of Greek companies. The participation of Greece in MWC15 was really significant, since Greek companies actually believe in the meaning of the tagline “GRowing the Ecosystem”. At the edge of innovation, “GRowing the ecosystem” means to further promote Greek social entrepreneurship to global markets.

Moreover, many Greek expats living in Europe visited the Greek Pavilion and M-STAT’s booth, so as to find out more about our company and services. They were also interested in learning in which countries M-STAT operates and they also expressed their interest regarding our WebSMS platform and PSMS services. Our booth had also a major impact on visitors from different countries around the world, since many people from Columbia, South Africa, Tunisia, Spain, Germany, Egypt, Italy and France showed their interest in our company and services as well. Furthermore, our instant win game had a great appeal to them, since they were eager to play with us and participate in our draw, in order to win a little gift: a branded power bank!

It has been a great experience for both our team and Greek companies to meet and interact with people from all over the world and we sincerely hope that next year is going to be even better!
