The GSMA announced that more than 93,000 visitors attended the Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona.

The Mobile World Congress is getting bigger, approaching the size of the CES. Considering that the MWC is focused on one major consumer electronics segment (mobile technologies), the size of the show is impressive. The MWC 2015 had 93,000 visitors, which is a new record, beating the record set last year with 85,000 visitors. The CES, the largest technology show on the planet, had 170,000 visitors this year.

The CES, however, covers all aspects of consumer electronics. The MWC is now more than half the size of CES. The MWC 2015 visitors had 52% C-level executives, including more than 5,000 CEOs; 18% of attendees for the 2015 show were women.

The 2015 Mobile World Congress featured more than 2,000 products and services across a 1.1-million square-feet space. CES 2015 had 3,600 exhibitors on a 2.2-million square feet of space. In terms of the size and number of exhibitors, the MWC is also about half the size of CES.

“As we celebrate the 10th anniversary of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, we are gratified by the record-breaking success we’ve seen this year,” said John Hoffman, CEO, GSMA Ltd. “It’s been a tremendously exciting show, with many major device launches, discussion and debate on the future of our industry and demonstrations of the cutting-edge products and services that customers are enjoying now and will experience in the future. The industry has advanced significantly over the past decade and we look forward to the many new developments that the next ten years will surely hold.”

The big highlights of the MWC 2015 included the premiere of the new Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

The 2016 Mobile World Congress will be held on February 22-25, 2016 at Fira Gran Via in Barcelona.
