Where to Network
We know how important it is to find space at MWC to hold those essential face-to-face meetings with potential partners and clients, so we’re happy to share the details about our open-air Networking Gardens. These spaces are tailor-made for networking with ample seating, food and drink outlets, as well as free Wi-Fi.
New for 2019 are Networking Events. Open exclusively to Conference Pass holders (first come, first serve basis) Citi and VMware will host networking receptions in Hall 4. Also new for 2019, is the Networking Hub located in South Village, with sponsor hosted Networking Events.
A total of eleven Networking Gardens are thoughtfully located throughout Fira Gran Via: eight on the upper level and three on the lower level. Hold informal gatherings, meet clients, socialise with other attendees or simply grab some fresh air. The upper level Networking Gardens are sponsored by Husqvarna, SES Networks, Salesforce and Wipro, with the Android Garden located on the lower level.

We also have a number of Networking Lounges in various locations throughout the venue. For more information on lounges, please visit here.
