At the end of the month of February, Barcelona opens the doors of its main congress: the Mobile World Congress. The world's largest event for the mobile industry is also one of the biggest events in the annual calendar of fairs and events of Barcelona. Every year, the congress brings thousands of people to the Catalan capital who interested to know more about the latest news and innovations in the sector. An unmissable appointment for any lover of any new technologies. From EnjoyBCN we want you to enjoy your congress days in Barcelona. For this reason we have prepared an article with some tips so you do not miss anything of the MWC 2019.
The Mobile World Congress dates for 2019 were published many months ago. 25-28 February, Barcelona becomes, once again, the world capital of technology. More than 100,000 visitors and more than 2,300 companies and brands are ready to shake up the smartphones and mobile devices market. Brands as important as Samsung, IBM, HTC, LG, Huawei, Vodafone or Telefonica are again part of the list of the exhibitors of the 2019 edition.
In order to not miss any of the events and conferences that are planned by the top CEOs of the biggest companies in the sector, the best option is to check the Mobile World Congress 2019 program. In addition, and with the main goal of reaching the general public, the congress offers different spaces such as the Youth Mobile Festival (YoMo), the Women4Tech or the NeXTech Hall 8.0, dedicated to robotics, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and drones.
The cultural and gastronomic offer will also be present in the MWC 2019 with the Hospitalet Experience area, brought there by L'Hospitalet de Llobregat City Hall. There, all the international attendees will have the opportunity to discover much more about the typical food and dishes of the Catalan gastronomy while enjoying some performances of traditional folklore.
The congress will take place in two different venues of Barcelona. The first of these is Fira Gran Via, located on Joan Carles I Avenue in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, right next to Barcelona. The second venue is in Fira Montjuïc, on Avenida Maria Cristina, next to Plaça d'Espanya. Fira Montjuïc will host the event known as 4YFN (Four Years From Now), destined to professionals and, mainly, entrepreneurs of the sector. If you plan on going to the 4YFN, keep in mind that this area of Barcelona is perfect for sightseeing and visiting some emblematic places, such as the Parc de Montjuïc, the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc or the Barcelona Pavilion designed by Mies van der Rohe.
The city provides a lot of possibilities for all visitors to access the MWC fairground. The Metro Line 9 , the buses H12, 46, 65 and 79 as well as the lines S8, S33, R6, R5 and S4 of the Railways are the best options for those who decide to go to the venue in public transport. At the same time, the Catalan city will reinforce its fleet of taxis and there will be several companies that provide a special chauffeur service for the Mobile World Congress.

Gorgeous apartment! Our stay was absolutely lovely. The space is stylish and clean with an amazing view overlooking the city. It’s also central to many restaurants/cafes and easy access to further neighborhoods and tourist attractions. The space fit our group of 10 very comfortably with three nice large bathrooms and comfortable beds. The common area is bright and welcoming with a kitchen conducive for gathering and entertaining. As is the beautiful rooftop terrace + pool! We would absolutely stay there again.
We are so glad to see that you had a great stay at the apartment and liked it that much. It is also so nice to see that you enjoyed our rooftop terrace. Thank you for this fantastic comment. It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you again soon.

We had a fantastic extended weekend in the apartment and it was absolutely perfect - we were 8 people of which a little boy of 1.5 years and there was highchair and baby cot put up perfectly! Nice location close to town and beach. We definitely rent here again - thank you for a lovely stay!
We are so glad to see that you had a great stay at the apartment and felt well taken care of. It is also so nice to know that as a family with a baby you got your needs covered. It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you soon in Barcelona!

This apartment was the perfect place for our group of 4 couples. Each of us had appropriate privacy and our own bathrooms. Everything was clean and updated, just as expected. The space was quite spacious, even for 8 people. We enjoyed the multiple seating areas in the living room. And as you can tell by the photos, it is decorated nicely and stylish. The creative indoor patio was unique and we enjoyed the fun swing! The views were great as well! We loved the location! It seemed almost everywhere we went it was only a 15-20 minute walk- Barre Gotic, La Ramblas, the Boqueria, and Arc de Triomf. It is also close to public transportation and taxi stands. We found good restaurant selections within this area. There is a nice coffee shop two doors down and a small Market two doors down in the other direction. The only negative was there was work going on in an adjacent apartment, so during the day, we heard almost constant jackhammer noise! This, of course, can happen anytime if you are choosing multi family dwellings and certainly not controllable by the rental company, however it certainly was annoying. Enjoy BCN (the rental company), was fantastic in helping us with our trip, offering thoughtful suggestions whenever we needed it. And their response time was amazing. We would definitely choose this apartment again when in Barcelona!
Thank you for this wonderful and detailed comment! We are so happy to see that you liked that much the apartment and felt well taken care of. We also wanted say thanks from all the team for the complete email you sent us with suggestions and tips to improve our service. We considered it so useful and constructive and we wanted to take the chance to express you our gratitude again. It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you soon again in Barcelona!
