Barcelona Parc Güell

12 years of fruitful results; Mobile World Congress

Mobile World Congress

Last Thursday, the 12th edition of the Mobile World Congress 2017 held in Barcelona closed its best edition and we, Lleida.net were present for another year. From the first tiny stand in a corner on the second floor of a pavilion, 12 years ago, sharing snacks and stealing finger food from our neighbours, on this edition we enjoyed a magnificent two-floor stand supported by 28 members of Lleida.net team.
We are very satisfied.
The people from all our departments are fully aware of the importance of the MWC and they are involved in all the stages of the exhibition. And now it’s time to put together and monetized all – and there are many-  the contacts made.

It is a fair, where a high performance is obtained due to the work intensity. More than 150 meetings scheduled, countless demos of Lleida.net services to our international partners, international official visits looking forward to know our certification model to apply them on their respective markets and, without a doubt, to the trade fair visitors who came to see us on our stand interested in our services and novelties.

The excellent collaboration with Kreab, our PR agency, helped us to explain our products and services to the media, on both local and global scales, through press releases and relevant events that we regularly publish. Also, our technical departments did not lag the opportunity and took advantage of this superstore of possible suppliers.

The Mobile also allows us to host colleagues, friends and clients who do not want to miss the event.  We support them with tickets and in a few occasions providing accommodation, since prices increase exponentially as the event is closer.This all results in 4 to 5 million euros per year, about 50% of our business revenue. Lleida.net is, a multinational listed on the Stock Exchange, thanks to some extent, to the Mobile held in Barcelona.

Thanks, Mobile World Congress, thanks Barcelona, thank you kindly 🙂
